Produced by Dennis Fowler, directed by Laura Pestronk and choreographed by Erin Porvaznika, the evening features the songs of composer-lyricist Seth Bisen-Hersh.
Scheduled to perform are Brian Childers, Bryan Fenkart, Russell Fischer, Kimberly Faye Greenberg, Autumn Hurlburt, Lara Janine, Brianne Moore, Brooke Sunny Moriber, Ryan Neller, Olivia Oguma, Mary Orzano, Kate Rockwell, Brian Charles Rooney, Brandon Ruckdashel, Kevin Vortmann, Correy West and Kristen Beth Williams.
Concertgoers can expect to hear songs from Bisen-Hersh's children's musical, Stanley's Party; his new song cycle, Love Quirks: a song cycle of unconventional devotion; and his new musical, What If...? Songs will also include "So You Wanna be Feline?," "Losing a Pet," "I'm Not Interested in You," "This is Awkward," "Can You Believe I Was Ever Sad We Broke Up?" and the popular YouTube hit, "Hey!"
All the proceeds for the evening will go to the Humane Society of New York, which has "cared for animals in need when illness, injury or homelessness strikes" for over 100 years. Last year, The Humane Society saved Bisen-Hersh's cat, Smee, and this benefit is his way of saying thanks.
