Max Vernon, the award-winning composer of The View UpStairs and KPOP, will continue his Existential Life Crisis Lullaby residency at Joe’s Pub October 23 at 7 PM.
Vernon will be joined by Tony winner Alice Ripley, Justin Vivian Bond, Tony nominee Ethan Slater, Tony nominee Robin de Jesús, Stephen Trask, and Nathan Lee Graham. The evening will be directed by Jaki Bradley.
Vernon's musicals have received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical, three Drama Desk Award nominations, a Jonathan Larson Grant, and the Richard Rodgers Award; KPOP is planning an Off-Broadway return in 2019.
In addition to his acclaimed musicals, the residency (which concludes November 27 with different guests) will preview Vernon's newest work, The Tattooed Lady (written with Obie-winning playwright Erin Courtney) alongside other previously unheard material. The series also features different set lists and about 300 costumes—many created by Vernon himself.
