Lisa Brescia, Emma Hunton, Patti Murin, Katie Thompson and More Set for Kerrigan-Lowdermilk NYMF Concerts
03 Jul 2013
Lisa Brescia, Emma Hunton and Patti Murin are among the artists who will take part in two New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) concerts that feature the music of songwriting duo Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk July 25 at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
The 6 PM and 9 PM concerts, directed by David Ruttura, will include performances from Brescia (Mamma Mia!, Wicked), Jennifer Cody (The Pajama Game, Urinetown), Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal, The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown), Hunton (Next to Normal national tour, Spring Awakening), Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones, Xanadu), Dee Roscioli (Wicked), Kate Shindle (Legally Blonde, Wonderland), Katie Thompson (Giant), Zach Altman (Gotham Chamber Opera) and singer-songwriter Jesse Ruben (The Ones that Matter), among others.
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.
