Alexander Sage Oyen Song Cycle Moment by Moment Will Play 54 Below; Emma Hunton, Jason Gotay Among Performers
By Michael Gioia
Emma Hunton, Jason Gotay, Meghann Fahy, Zak Resnick and George Salazar will star in a concert version of composer Alexander Sage Oyen's song cycle Moment by Moment Aug. 31 at Manhattan nightspot 54 Below.
Directed by Brandon Ivie with musical direction by Benjamin M. Rauhala, the 11 PM concert, featuring songs about love, cults and McDonalds, promises "a vibrant, realistic and fresh look at what it is to be a young adult in today's world, told through Oyen's musical styling."
The song cycle will feature Hunton (Spring Awakening), Gotay (Bring It On), Fahy (Next to Normal), Resnick (Mamma Mia!) and Salazar (Godspell, Here Lies Love).
"Moment by Moment, in essence, is a show comprised of musical theatre short stories," added composer Oyen in a statement. "However, if you look closer, you can find that each story teller has an arc and their own individual story to tell. The show will have some world-premiere tunes in it and some brand spankin' new orchestrations."
Oyen's Moment by Moment will have its international premiere in February 2014. His other projects include Sidekicks, which was seen as part of the NYMF 2012 Reading Series, and A Night Like This, which was produced at Florida State University and Princeton University. He can be heard on Scott Alan's "Live" album and was seen on VH1's "In Search of the Partridge Family." His albums include "Drafts" and "If I Knew Better."
Lina Renzina produces.
