A host of Broadway understudies, who never had the opportunity to go on in the roles they were covering, got their chance to stand in the spotlight Jan. 20 at 54 Below in an evening titled Not At This Performance.
The concert featured the talents of Jay Armstrong Johnson (Hands on a Hard Body, Catch Me If You Can), Alysha Umphress (American Idiot, On a Clear Day), Alex Brightman (Wicked, Glory Days), Jake Boyd (Carrie, Rock of Ages), Eric Michael Krop (Godspell), Corey Mach (Hands on a Hard Body, Godspell), Elly Noble (Carrie), Justin Patterson (A Little Night Music, Memphis) and Constantine Rousouli (Ghost, Wicked). Show time is 9:30 PM.
Attendees heard songs from A Little Night Music, Carrie, Catch Me If You Can, Ghost, Glory Days, Godspell and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.
The concert was produced by Shoshana Feinstein with music direction by Benjamin M. Rauhala.
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.
