Pasek and Paul's Edges to Be Performed at Duplex

News   Pasek and Paul's Edges to Be Performed at Duplex Benj Pasek and Justin Paul's song cycle Edges will be presented July 6 and 7 at the Duplex Cabaret Theatre.

The concerts will feature the talents of Adam Dietz, Janine Mercandetti, Anne Montavon and Michael Munoz. Show time is 7 PM. Edges, according to press notes, "tracks four distinct characters who feel stifled by a world in which they are not challenged to truly know themselves. They have succumbed to the definitions that they are forced into by their social surroundings. These definitions allow them only to partially invest in finding out what would really fulfill them. As we witness the pivotal moments in their lives, we see them question whether they are simply stuck being who others want them to be, or whether they can indeed break through to discover their own potential."

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are up-and-coming musical theatre writers. Their best-known work, Edges, has been presented in Washington, Philadelphia and New York City. Another evening of their songs, titled Uncharted: Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, will be presented at the Ars Nova July 17.

The Duplex Cabaret Theatre is located in Manhattan at 61 Christopher Street. There is a $15 cover charge and a two-drink minimum; call (212) 255-5438 for reservations.
