A concert version of Mixtape, a new musical featuring a score and book by Zoe Sarnak, will be presented at 54 Below Jan. 24, 2014.

Mixtape in Concert will feature the talents of Richard H. Blake, Kristy Cates, Mykal Kilgore, Taylor Noble, Zak Resnick and Kacie Sheik. Doors will open at 10 PM for the 11 PM performance.

Mixtape, according to press notes, is a "series of vignettes, memories and songs that track the lifelong friendship between record-store owners, Thatcher and Louise. Making a mixtape as they pack up inventory in the store’s final days, the two relive their shared story, track by track. Only as the project draws to a close, do we realize that for Louise, there is a more compelling reason behind making the mix. The greatest songs take on life and meaning beyond what the words and notes were written to convey. In Mixtape, each mash-up includes an iconic pop/rock/soul song and original song representing the voice of the character in the moment. Just as with any mash-up, two realms of music become intertwined, creating the one memory, a track on a mixtape."

There is a $25-$35 cover charge and a $25 food and beverage minimum. For more information and tickets, call (646) 476-3551 or visit 54Below.com.
