The 7 PM concert features songs from Almond's career, including his album "Mexico City." Murphy (Passion, The People in the Picture, Wonderful Town), who will star as the Witch in the Shakespeare in the Park staging of Into the Woods, is slated to sing the title track from that album.

Todd Almond Loves You also promises never-before-heard material, and will cover such Almond obsessions as "places, ponies, love, Dolly Parton, and paradise." Almond and Murphy are backed by a five-piece band, a string quartet and a ten-person choir.
Almond has penned On the Levee, Girlfriend, People Like Us, Kansas City Choir Boy, Ahraihsak and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, which premiered at Yale Rep. He is currently collaborating with Warren Leight and Stafford Arima on a musical adaptation of "A Separate Peace." His adaptation of "The Odyssey," with DeBessonet, debuted at the Old Globe Theatre in September 2011. Upcoming projects also include a new musical with Jenny Schwartz and a theatre piece with Tony-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl. His solo album, "Mexico City," is currently available.
