Bryce Pinkham, Richard H. Blake, Robin De Jesus Will Find "Next Big Songwriter" for Twenty-Somethings Highline Concert
28 May 2014
Twenty-Somethings 2, featuring the music of songwriters Drew Overcash, Blake Pfeil and Zoe Sarnak, will be held Aug. 18 at the Highline Ballroom.
Produced by Krysta Hibbard, the 8 PM concert — which follows a sold-out edition last summer — will feature new music from the songwriters' latest projects.
This year's Twenty-Somethings will feature a "Fresh Pens" contest looking for the "next big songwriter," who will be paired with a Broadway star and premiere his/her piece at the concert. The deadline for submissions is June 27, and the winner will be announced July 11. For more information and to enter, click here.
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.
