The Music of Maglione and Ruiz: #thestruggle, a concert featuring the songs of new musical theatre composers David Maglione and Tomas Ruiz, will be offered May 29 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City.



The 7 PM concert will feature performances from Lilli Cooper (Spring Awakening, The Threepenny Opera), Blake Daniel (Spring Awakening), Julia Knitel (Bye Bye Birdie), Bonnie Milligan (Jasper in Deadland), Aaron Riesebeck (Academy), Max Chernin, Monet Julia Sabel, Melanie Brook, Spencer Kiely and Chris Frazier, among others.

The evening promises "uplifting music for all those who are going through it. For those who have never 'gone through it,' a) you probably have and b) you will by the end of the night. The Music of Maglione and Ruiz: #thestruggle is your last chance to catch this duo before they 'go through it' on their first commissioned songwriting project this summer." 

Maglione and Ruiz are the authors of Gypsy Housing: A Sorta Kinda Love Story, which was seen in January at the Manhattan Rep Theatre. The two played a sold-out concert in January at the Triad.

The Laurie Beechman Theatre inside the West Bank Café is located at 407 W. 42nd Street. There is a $10 cover plus a two-drink minimum. For more information and tickets, click here.
