Anne L. Nathan, Michael McCormick, Jared Loftin and More Set for Free Broadway's Future Concert
24 Jan 2014
Broadway’s Future Songbook Series — presented by Arts and Artists at St. Paul — will continue Jan. 27 in the Bruno Walter Auditorium at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
Directed, hosted and produced by John Znidarsic, the free evening will spotlight the songs of the award-winning writing team of James Olmstead (composer) and Omri Schein (lyricist). Show time is 6 PM.
This concert will feature selections from Gary Goldfarb: Master Escapist, the winner of the 2013 NYMF Award for Excellence in Writing (Lyrics) and the winner of the first annual NYMF/Steele Spring Stage Rights Publishing Award.
The musical, according to press notes, "follows Gary Goldfarb, an overweight Jewish boy who struggles through high school and fights for his dreams. He’s incessantly bullied. He’s trying to get the hot Indian Jewish girl to notice him. His over-bearing mother is far too much to handle. All Gary can do is escape thru the world of magic."
The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts' Bruno Walter Auditorium is located at 111 Amsterdam Avenue and 65th Street.
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.
