After a sold-out first edition in October 2012, the series will return to Joe's Pub and feature 15 world-premiere songs.
For the 7 PM concert, which benefits The Red Cross, musical theatre writers — ages 19-90, who were born everywhere from Kansas City to San Francisco to Montreal — will write a song about someone who changed their idea of New York City.
Scheduled to perform are David Austin, Jenni Barber (The Performers), Jeff Blumenkrantz, Andrea Burns (In the Heights), Cott (Newsies), Maribeth Graham, Emma Hunton (Spring Awakening), Megan Kane, Eric Michael Krop (Godspell), Eric William Morris (Mamma Mia!), Alexander Sage Oyen, Nadia Quinn (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Rodriguez ("Smash"), Dana Rowe and Jessica Vosk, among others.
The concert is created by Caleb Hoyer and Jennifer Ashley Tepper, creators of the If It Only Even Runs A Minute series.
Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street. There is a $12 food/drink minimum. For more information and tickets, visit JoesPub.com
