The piece was co-written by and features Bombay Dreams actress Anisha Nagarajan, who plays Priya in the A.R. Rahman musical at the Broadway Theatre.
Middle Management presents the show 11 PM Aug. 6-7 on the stage where 4th Interval is presenting a double bill of Marry Me a Little and The Diary of Adam and Eve.
"Tracing their lives as they encounter triumphs and tribulations, Snapshots covers humorous moments such as love at a middle school dance, to painful memories such as watching a parent slip away," according to the announcement. The "unique theatrical experience" began as a few songs that have since evolved into an entire evening of music.
"Different from other cabaret shows, the songs of Snapshots are connected by an implied plot as opposed to a theme," the producer announced. "We watch the main character (the daughter) from the moment she is born through the moment she realizes her true love. The trajectory from that first moment to first love is Snapshots."
The music is by long-time collaborators Michael Mitnick and Anisha Nagarajan, with lyrics by Michael Mitnick. Nagarajan, who left her sophomore year at New York University to make her Broadway debut in Bombay Dreams, is an award-winning pianist and composer. Mitnick, a senior at Harvard College, is an up-and-coming composer who co-wrote the music and lyrics for "Winning Caroline," winner of Best Comedy at the Ivy Film Festival. The cast of Snapshots includes Bombay Dreams performers Aaron Albano, Krystal Kiran Garib, Ian Jutsun, Miriam Laube and Aalok Mehta.
45th Street Theatre is at 354 W. 45th St., between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
Tickets are $10. For more information on 4th Interval and the Dark Night Series (of which Snapshots is a part) visit www.fourthinterval.com.
