Voices For FindMyVoice.Org, a benefit hosted by Brian Patrick Murphy (Legally Blonde national tour), was held Aug. 17 at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre.
The 90-minute concert was produced by and featured Ashley Moniz (Legally Blonde, 9 to 5 national tours).
Performers included composer/lyricist Bobby Cronin, Laura D’Andre (Hair national tour), Sara Dobrinich (Engeman Theater’s Hairspray), Brian Gallagher (Jekyll and Hyde), Stephanie Burkett Gerson ("America’s Got Talent"), Zane Gerson (Engeman Theater’s Hairspray), Megan Hilty ("Smash," 9 to 5, Wicked), Heather Parcells (A Chorus Line, Wonderland), Rob Rokicki (Evita 25th anniversary tour), pianist Madelyn Rubenstein and Sara Sheperd (Muny’s Legally Blonde).
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.
