17 Mar 2014
Inspired 4, which will benefit the animal rescue organizations Eleventh Hour Rescue NJ and The Low Cost Vet Mobile NYC, will be presented March 31 at 7 PM in Manhattan at Stage 72.
The evening will feature the talents of Kerrigan & Lowdermilk, Bobby Cronin, Timothy Huang, Lyons & Pakchar, Leanna Renee Hieber, William Demaniow and Amanda Taraska.
Produced, created and hosted by composer Cronin, Inspired, according to press notes, is a benefit concert series for "animal rescue organizations across the country that will play every other month, with a rotating line-up of some of today’s exciting musical theatre writers in a casual and intimate setting as they sit behind the piano and, unlike traditional concerts of their material, perform songs by other writers that have inspired their work. … [The series] hopes to spread the word about the 2.7 million adoptable animals that are euthanized each year in America."
Jessica Kahkoska serves as associate producer.
Stage 72/The Triad is located at 158 W. 72nd Street, 2nd floor. There is a $15 general admission charge/$10 for students plus a two-drink minimum; cash only. Click here for tickets.
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.
