Emma Hunton and Sarah Stiles are part of a concert presentation of Island Song, a new musical anthology by Derek Gregor and Sam Carner, Nov. 12 at (le) Poisson Rouge.

Marlo Hunter directs the 7 PM concert reading that features Hunton (Next to Normal) and Stiles (Into The Woods, Avenue Q), as well as Raena White (Dreamgirls), Preston Sadleir, (Next to Normal) and David Ayers (Wicked).

Twenty percent of the profits from the evening will be donated to the New York City Firefighter Foundation. 

According to the authors, "Island Song is the story of five New Yorkers caught in a twisted love affair with the city. This unique musical anthology takes us through their poignant and hilarious journeys to seize the possibilities the city dangles before them. Driven by a kinetic and eclectic score featuring three MAC-nominated songs, Island Song captures every urbanite's triumphs, disappointments, and ever-tested perspective."



The reading is produced by Jennifer Isaacson. Island Song will have an international debut in Tokyo this December.

Carner and Gregor's Richard Rodgers Award-winning musical Unlock'd was produced at NYMF in 2007. The Prospect Theatre Company will produce it in summer 2013.

Tickets are $15 plus a two-drink minimum. Click here to purchase. (le) Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street between Sullivan and Thompson Streets.
