“I used to be disillusioned to see an commercial utilizing my picture and our band’s trademark THE CRÜE to advertise this play.

“The promoting is deceptive as a result of it means that I and the opposite members of the band are by some means concerned with the play.

“We’ve got by no means been approached about this play. And MÖTLEY CRÜE has no connection or affiliation with this play in anyway.”

“The Crüe” is written and directed by Lucarelli, award-winning author/producer of “Physician Zomba’s Ghost Present”, author of “Tinseltown” (Alterna Comics) and “The Kids’s Vampire Searching Brigade” graphic novels.

I am so excited to return to the Fringe fest for my directorial debut with ‘The Crüe’. Provided that MÖTLEY rose up from the exact same streets of Hollywood that now deliver forth the Hollywood Fringe fest, it appears like the proper place to do it.

This play is my try to indicate them as extra than simply one-dimensional caricatures and present the world why they imply a lot to so many.”

He added: “The casting of Ryan Ruffing as Nikki Sixx has been an actual coup. Nikki was the mastermind behind the band, and Ryan captures completely the single-minded depth it took to make MÖTLEY CRÜE so ma***ively profitable, the brilliance of his artistic imaginative and prescient, and the darkish facet of his self-destructive nature.”
