Tony Award winner Alice Ripley (Next to Normal) as well as former Hair tribe members Kacie Sheik and Andrew Kober have joined the cast of A Lasting Impression, a contemporary new musical by theatrical songwriter Zoe Sarnak, which will be seen in concert June 29 at Joe's Pub.
The 7 PM concert, directed by Laura Pietropinto, will also feature Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal, NBC's "Chicago Fire"), Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal tour) and Taylor Noble.
A Lasting Impression, according to press notes, "is the story of two sisters, Kali, a composer, and Simone, a painter, told through the eyes of a jaded young journalist, Josh, who is searching for his 'next big story.' As Josh recounts his interviews with these two artists living in modern-day Brooklyn with their mother, he uncovers the secrets of a crumbling family. Through musical and visual elements, the sisters' artwork is woven through Josh's narrative. A Lasting Impression is about the impact we make through love and art."
The concert is presented by Cutting-Edge Composers in association with Hope Lights Partners.
A Lasting Impression, winner of Pace New Musicals 2012 and performed Off-Broadway at the 4th Street Theatre at NYTW in August 2012, won the 2013 NJ Playwright's contest.
Songwriter Sarnak has four full-length musicals in development, including Mixtape, which was featured in Silent Street Productions' 2012 season.
Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street. For more information and tickets, visit JoesPub.com.
