The evening, which marks the composer and lyricist's cabaret debut, will be directed by Matthew DiCarlo with musical direction by Rosser. Composer-lyricist Ryan Scott Oliver and Very Intense Productions are producing.
54 Below describes the evening as such: "How many evenings can be spent in the company of a family of evangelical creationists (The Profit of Creation), dancing boys in Afghanistan (The Boy Who Danced On Air), opinionated if slightly confused teenagers (Political Speeches By Young People), and robotic tin soldiers (Third Time’s A Charm)? The work of songwriters Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne is far-ranging, but united by a unique blend of sincerity, sensitivity, thoughtfulness, and humor. Come hear Broadway’s finest perform a set that will make you laugh, cry, order a martini, and then chase it with bourbon."
54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. Tickets and information are available at www.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.
