Wade teams up with New York songwriters Sam Carner and Derek Gregor for the 9:30 PM concert, which features an entire set of Carner and Gregor's work.

Guest performers include Derek Klena (Wicked, The Bridges of Madison County, Dogfight), Natalie Weiss (Everyday Rapture, Wicked, Les Misérables) and Stephen C. Anthony (The Book of Mormon, Catch Me If You Can).

Prior to Wade's television and stage success, Carner and Gregor discovered her at a University of Windsor (Ontario) master class and featured her in their 4th annual Barely Legal Show-Tune Extravaganza.

"Sam and Derek's work is just stunning," said Wade in an earlier statement. "It's complex and powerful and hilarious. It captures things you've thought and felt and experienced, but never heard put into a song. And the music just sticks — and rocks!"

Carner and Gregor's musical Unlock'd played an extended run last summer at the Duke Theatre in Times Square, and their musical Island Song has had developmental workshops and workshop productions around the country and world. They will be writers in residence at the Goodspeed Festival of New Musicals in January 2015.
