19 Jun 2014
Two concert performances of the original musical Sing Me Home will be presented July 20 at 8 PM and July 21 at 1 PM at The Laurie Beechman Theatre.
Mandy Gonzalez (Wicked, In the Heights, Aida) and Telly Leung (Wicked, Rent, Allegiance) will perform the score, accompanied by musical director, singer/songwriter Angela Parrish and her band.
Sing Me Home features a book by Amber Romina Cassell and music and lyrics by singer/songwriter Kristy Hanson. The score comprises 13 original songs in the pop-rock genre, with influences ranging from rhythm and blues to country.
"Sometimes healing a broken heart means finding your voice," according to press notes. "Years ago, music superstar Lexi Angel mysteriously vanished from the spotlight. On the eve of her auspicious comeback, a familiar face appears in her dressing room in need of help. As Lexi embarks on this new phase of her career, the demands of her future and shadows of her past collide, taking Lexi on a hilarious and heartfelt journey to a place she’s never been before… home."
The concerts are presented by The New York Musical Theatre Festival.
The Sing Me Home creative team will also offer a preview concert performance at Los Angeles’ Rockwell Table & Stage July 13 at 7 PM. The evening will feature performances from creatives Hanson and Parrish as well as Dominic Barnes, Julie Garnye, Curt Mega, Kate Pazakis, Kelli Provart, Haviland Stillwell and more.
Ticket prices are $25 ($20 for NYMF members). The Laurie Beechman Theatre at the West Bank Café is located at 407 W. 42nd St. Tickets can be purchased through OvationTix online at www.NYMF.org, by phone at (212) 352-3101.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
