You're Gonna Hate This, a new musical from Lindsay Mendez and Michael Holland — who met and collaborated on the Broadway revival of Godspell — debuted at Joe's Pub April 21.
Directed by Dave Solomon with music directed by Michael Borth, the show is a two-person musical revue conceived by Mendez (Godspell, Dogfight, Everyday Rapture, Grease) and Holland (orchestrations and vocal arrangements for Godspell), with music and lyrics by Holland.
According to Joe's Pub, Mendez and Holland "team up to celebrate America’s true favorite pastime with You're Gonna Hate This, a fast-paced original revue featuring new songs by Holland. Crossing, blurring and deliberately smearing the lines of pop, rock, jazz, gospel, and even (gasp) musical theatre, the show explores all the stuff we love to hate - and does so with a six-piece band. Come hate everything with us (you know you want to)."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
