22 Jul 2013
Tony Award nominees Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) and Josh Young (Jesus Christ Superstar) have joined the lineup of performers for the upcoming New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) concerts that feature the music of songwriting duo Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk July 25 at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
The 6 PM and 9 PM concerts, directed by David Ruttura, will include performances from Steven Booth (Dogfight, Glory Days), Todd Buonopane (Grease), Lisa Brescia (Mamma Mia!, Wicked), Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal, The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown), Emma Hunton (Next to Normal national tour, Spring Awakening), Dee Roscioli (Wicked), Kate Shindle (Legally Blonde, Wonderland), Young and singer-songwriter Jesse Ruben (The Ones that Matter), among others.
Jordan and Katie Thompson (Giant) will perform at the 6 PM concert, and Zach Altman (Gotham Chamber Opera) will perform at the 9 PM concert.
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.
