The 7 PM concert, produced by the Wild Project, features Julia Mattison (Godspell), Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening), Lisa Brescia (Wicked, Mamma Mia), Andrew Kober (Hair), F. Michael Haynie (Wicked, Dogfight), Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal), Gabriel Violett (Spring Awakening), Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening) and Keith White.
Here's how the new musical is described: "Dance songs, crotch shots, public meltdowns, twitter rants, little monsters, mean girls, media overload, paparazzi, drugs, clubs…any of this sound familiar? #UntitledPopMusical tells the story of the meteoric rise and fall of international pop sensation Jenna Styles, and what instant fame means now in our digital world."
The concert incorporates various social media outlets, and fans of Styles (@JennaStylez) are able to tweet about the show and see it incorporated live on stage.
Kimmel's other projects include Turn of The Screw (music and lyrics by Gasparini), PainLess (with music and lyrics by Zoe Sarnak) and Bluebird.
Gasparini has also written the music and lyrics for his musicals Crazy, Just Like Me; Make Me Bad (book by Alex Brightman); and Turn Of The Screw (book by Kimmel).
(le) Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street (between Thompson and Sullivan). For more information and tickets, visit LPRNYC.com.
