The Gallery incorporates eclectic material – original pieces, rarely performed Broadway tunes, the Guns 'n' Roses rock hit "November Rain" – in order "to show the relationship between artistic processes across different art genres and to redefine contemporary musical performance by merging classical cabaret with a contemporary rock/pop aesthetic," press notes state. The cast of up-and-coming young talent features We Will Rock You's Joey Calveri as the painter at the center of The Gallery, with cabaret artists Tori Scott, Ashley McHugh, Kathrine Schickert, Maegan McConnell, Sarah Katherine Mason, Melanie Waldron and Kristi Ambrosetti as the performers who bring his work to life through a series of interactive confessions. Rob Baumgartner serves as musical director.
