Brian Justin Crum, who is currently a cast member of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical Next to Normal, will make his solo debut Jan. 24, 2011, with Nowhere Near Normal, a concert at Joe's Pub.
Grammy and Academy Award-winning and Tony-nominated composer Stephen Schwartz and singing actors Tituss Burgess and Donna Vivino are set to make guest appearances, with more guest performers to be announced shortly.
Jesse Vargas will provide musical direction and arrangements for the show, which is set to feature a selection of Broadway and rock music.
Crum has also appeared in the Broadway revival and national tour of Grease. Other credits include Wicked, Altar Boyz, Snapshots and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Joe's Pub is located in the Public Theater at 425 Lafeyette Street. Tickets are $20 and are available at JoesPub.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.
