Fans of “The O.C.” were welcomed back to the dark side for a one night trip down memory lane on Aug. 30, as Sucker Love Productions and Original Penguin presented “The Unauthorized O.C. Musical” to a sold-out house at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood. Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross — the team behind “The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions” — were the brains behind the event.
Twelve years after the show premiered, “O.C.” creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage were on hand to revisit Newport Beach, along with original cast members Rachel Bilson (Summer Roberts), Melinda Clarke (Julie Cooper) and Kelly Rowan (Kirsten Cohen). Fellow alum Autumn Reeser (Taylor Townsend) participated in the musical, taking over Clarke’s role and subsequently earning some of the biggest cheers of the night from the assembled “O.C.” faithful.
