Australian Cabaret Sensations in Concert
"Winners of the 10th Annual Australian Cabaret Showcase perform a double bill of their respective solo shows. Australian cabaret sensation Bradley McCaw stars in Cabaret: A Complete Unauthorized Biography and Amelia Ryan is a knockout in Storm in a D Cup! Don't miss this evening of unadulterated fun from down under!"

Kerrigan-Lowdermilk Live
"Now one of the most celebrated writing teams of their generation, Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk made their New York debut in NYMF's first season with The Woman Upstairs. Blurring the line between musical theater and pop music, their songs (including hits 'Run Away with Me' and 'My Party Dress') have garnered millions of YouTube views and earned them a legion of young fans around the world. Kait and Brian's critically acclaimed debut album 'Our First Mistake' reached #1 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart, and their musicals have been developed and produced at theaters across the country."

Riley Thomas: Looking Forward
"After a sold-out award-winning run of his musical Stuck at NYMF 2012, writer/composer Riley Thomas looks to the future with snapshots of four new works-in-progress, ranging from gritty black box pieces to full-scale Broadway style shows. Come be a part of the development by voting for your favorite!"

Song Moments: Daniel Maté in Concert
"Some moments in life are too intense, awkward, or outlandish for words — they deserve music, too. Acclaimed composer-lyricist Daniel Maté, winner of the 2013 Kleban Prize, transforms them into theatre tunes. Join Daniel and an amazing line-up of performers for a thrilling evening of compelling, clever, and catchy Song Moments!"

Where She Is Now: Dawn Cantwell & Friends
"Currently starring off-Broadway in F#%king Up Everything (NYMF '10), NYMF's 2011 Next Broadway Sensation winner returns to the festival with a one-night-only concert celebrating new musical theatre composers. NYMF alums Ryan Scott Oliver, Joe Iconis, and Jeff Thompson, are among the writers featured, with performances by Dawn, F#%king Up Everything castmates Jason Gotay and George Salazar, and others."  Continued...
