13 Jun 2014
Bitching and Belting: An Evening with Michael Gioia and Friends, a concert event where no complaint is too small and no note is too high, will be held July 3 at 54 Below.
The 11:30 PM concert, hosted by Playbill.com staff writer Michael Gioia — who also hosted The Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know: LIVE! at 54 Below in January — will feature music direction by Charlie Rosen.
Here's how the night is billed: "Pre-game with your favorite whiskey, throw on your best red, white and blue and head to 54 Below to ring in July 4 with some of the best belters on Broadway. Bitching and Belting: An Evening with Michael Gioia and Friends promises to be an unforgettable night where no complaint is too small and no note is too high. Join Michael Gioia (who hosted Playbill's Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know LIVE! in January) and his Broadway faves for a set list of the sassiest songs, most dangerous duets and, of course, some bad-ass bitching. There will be (vocal) fireworks — we promise!"
Yvette Kojic co-produces and co-directs alongside Gioia, and Rochel Saks will be the evening's stage manager.
