Cutting-Edge Composers, in association with Hope Lights Partners, will present A Lasting Impression, a contemporary new musical by theatrical songwriter Zoe Sarnak, in concert June 29 at Joe's Pub.



The 7 PM concert, directed by Laura Pietropinto, will feature Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal, NBC's "Chicago Fire"), Betsy Wolfe (The Last Five Years, The Mystery of Edwin Drood) and Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal tour), among others.

A Lasting Impression, according to press notes, "is the story of two sisters, Kali, a composer, and Simone, a painter, told through the eyes of a jaded young journalist, Josh, who is searching for his 'next big story.' As Josh recounts his interviews with these two artists living in modern-day Brooklyn with their mother, he uncovers the secrets of a crumbling family. Through musical and visual elements, the sisters' artwork is woven through Josh's narrative. A Lasting Impression is about the impact we make through love and art."

A Lasting Impression, winner of Pace New Musicals 2012 and performed Off-Broadway at the 4th Street Theatre at NYTW in August 2012, won the 2013 NJ Playwright's contest.

Songwriter Sarnak has four full-length musicals in development, including Mixtape, which was featured in Silent Street Productions' 2012 season.

Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street. For more information and tickets, visit JoesPub.com.
