Featuring music and lyrics by award-winning composer Gaby Alter and book and additional lyrics by Tommy Newman, the pop-rock song cycle will be presented at Joe's Pub Nov. 8 at 10 PM.
The cast will feature Curtis Holbrook (West Side Story, Xanadu), Lindsay Mendez (Everyday Rapture, Grease), Patti Murin (Xanadu), Farah Alvin (Nine, Grease) and Jason “SweetTooth” Williams (Things to Ruin, Bloodsong of Love) with Molly Hager, Lauren Marcus and Jared Weiss.
29, according to press notes, is a "high-octane pop-rock song cycle in which characters face defining moments of adulthood: from finding jobs and roommates, to an unexpected pregnancy, a parent's illness and falling in and out of love. As they head out of their twenties, the characters look back at a decade of change and loss, and reach to connect with each other and their real selves."
The band will feature Alter on piano with Alec Berlin (guitar), Danny Stone (bass), Allison Seidner (cello) and Jeremy Yaddaw (drums).
The concert is being produced by jokr productions (Joey Oliva and Katie Riegel).
Tickets for the concert are $20 and are available now online at joespub.com.
