OkayBetterBest, a new musical written by Rhonda Kess and Michael Weems, will be presented in concert September 20 at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
Directed by Tony Award nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Ragtime), the 9:30 PM concert will feature Stephanie Gibson (Cinderella), L’ogan J’ones (The SpongeBob Musical), Julia Mattison (Godspell), Eric William Morris (Be More Chill), Stephanie Jae Park (The King and I) and Ali Stroker (Spring Awakening) with additional cast members to be announced.
OkayBetterBest, according to Feinstein’s/54 Below, “brings the war of the sexes from NYC bars to the stage. The score, a mix of pop and musical theatre, accompanies the characters as they endure the painful lows and blissful highs of dating in a digital age. The show asks: can revenge be acquired by jilted women as they mercilessly seek a patsy for one night? Tricia and her girlfriends are out on the prowl, rebounding from past heartbreak. When Tricia’s plans to find Mr. Right Now don’t go as planned, the evening becomes a more personal battle. The concert will include selections from this new musical such as ‘One More Round,’ ‘Just Like That,’ ‘Next,’ ‘Sweeter Than Sweet,’ ‘Never Too Old to Rock n’ Roll,’ and others.”
Feinstein’s/54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com. Industry members interested in attending should email OkayBetterBest@gmail.com and indicate their affiliation.
