#UntitledPopMusical, the new musical conceived and written by Michael Kimmel (The Last Goodbye) with music and lyrics by Drew Gasparini ("Smash"), will have its debut concert June 24 at (le) Poisson Rouge.

The 7 PM concert, produced by the Wild Project, will feature Julia Mattison (Godspell), Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening), Lisa Brescia (Wicked, Mamma Mia), Andrew Kober (Hair), F. Michael Haynie (Wicked, Dogfight), Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal), Gabriel Violett (Spring Awakening), Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening) and Keith White.

Here's how the new musical is described: "Dance songs, crotch shots, public meltdowns, twitter rants, little monsters, mean girls, media overload, paparazzi, drugs, clubs…any of this sound familiar? #UntitledPopMusical tells the story of the meteoric rise and fall of international pop sensation Jenna Styles, and what instant fame means now in our digital world."

The concert will incorporate various social media outlets, and fans of Styles (@JennaStylez) will be able to tweet about the show and see it incorporated live on stage.

Orchestrations are by music director Charlie Rosen and Austin Moorehead, who will be featured on guitar alongside Justin Goldner (guitar/piano) and Jamie Eblen (drums). Video design is by Aaron Rhyne, and Ana Mari de Quesada is the production stage manager.

Kimmel's other projects include Turn of The Screw (music and lyrics by Gasparini), PainLess (with music and lyrics by Zoe Sarnak) and Bluebird.

Gasparini has also written the music and lyrics for his musicals Crazy, Just Like Me; Make Me Bad (book by Alex Brightman); and Turn Of The Screw (book by Kimmel).

(le) Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street (between Thompson and Sullivan). For more information and tickets, visit LPRNYC.com.
