Alter will make his 54 Below debut fresh from the Second Stage production of his musical Nobody Loves You. He is a Jonathan Larson Grant recipient and winner of both the San Diego and San Francisco Theater Critics' Circle Awards, the NYC Fringe Songwriting Award and an ASCAP Plus Award. His musicals also include Band Geeks (Goodspeed Musicals, Human Race Theater), 29 (NYU/Steinhardt), and contributions to the revue Stars of David (Daryl Roth Productions).
According to press notes, "Gaby will be premiering a collection of new songs, along with numbers from Nobody Loves You, with a group of favorite Broadway and off-Broadway actors. His music will make you laugh, giggle, possibly want to cry (or at least get kind of misty-eyed), and remain stuck in your head for several months after."
54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. There is a $25 cover charge plus a $25 food and beverage minimum. For more information and tickets, call (646) 476-3551 or visit 54Below.com.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
