The 8 PM concert includes performances of the new musicals The Water Dream and Clear.
Water Dream features book, music and lyrics by by Shawn Cody. The cast comprises Anthony Rapp, Karmine Alers, Shawn Cody, Emily Otto, Adam Kern, Cheo Bourne, Dee Roscioli and Doug Chapman with Catherine Hesse, Roger Stewart, Alisa Ledyard, Alana Rader, Lauren Champlin and Jonathan Gregg. The new musical "featuring whale puppets and an aquarium of real water [is] the story of an overly critical mythologist who, through facing loss and falling in love, becomes an artist: the author of an awe-inspiring myth," according to press notes.
Clear features book, music and lyrics by Paul Oakley Stovall with additional music by Stew, Ryan Link, Christo Willis and Irv Johnson. The new musical, which "is based on Paul Oakley Stovall's real-life transition from an actor and retail clerk to a member of a President Obama's Advance Team," features the talents of Ryan Link, Brad Simmons, John Patrick Walker, Celisse Henderson and Alexis Hightower.
