Katie Rose Clarke, Matt Doyle and Jay Armstrong Johnson will perform the music of composer-lyricist Will Van Dyke Jan. 17 Le Poisson Rouge.

The 10:30 PM concert, billed as Will Van Dyke: Live, will celebrate the songwriter's debut album "Chasing The Day," which was released on the Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records label.

In addition to Clarke (Wicked, Light in the Piazza), Doyle (Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie) and Johnson (Hair), the concert will feature Alex Brightman (Wicked), Katie Gassert (Seussical), Celisse Henderson (Wicked, In Transit), Morgan Karr (Spring Awakening), Carrie Manolakos (Wicked, Mama Mia!), Lindsay Mendez (Everyday Rapture, Grease), Andrew Rannels (Jersey Boys, Hairspray), Pauline Pisano and Alex Goley.

Van Dyke will perform on piano alongside musicians Damien Bassman, Sean Carney, David Fallo, Jim Hershman, Dave Kuhn, Allison Seidner and Hiroko Taguchi.

Featuring lyrics by Van Dyke and his collaborator Josh Halloway, "Chasing The Day" comprises "songs that were written on the road. Aboard planes. Across time zones. Between sets. In hotel lobbies. At 24 hour coffee shops. Miles apart. When the thought of home is your only companion. 'Chasing the Day' is about the places life takes us and the people who bring us back," according to the album liner notes.

For tickets, priced $15 in advance, phone (212) 505-3474, or visit LePoissonRouge. Le Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street.
