Concert performances of The Legend of New York, a new musical from the Drama Desk-nominated and Larson Award-winning team of Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunningham (I Love You Because) will be presented April 18 at 7 PM and 9:30 PM at Feinstein's/54 Below.
The concerts will feature the talents of Laura Osnes and Santino Fontana (co-stars of the 2013 Broadway musical Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella) plus Angela Grovey, J. Bernard Calloway and F. Michael Haynie, who will be backed by the eight-piece band The New York Funk-Harmonic. The concert will be music-directed by Kurt Crowley and directed by John Simpkins.
The Legend of New York, according to press notes, is a "Sodom and Gomorrah story set during the 1977 New York City blackout. An angel appears to a NYC cop and sends him on a quest to find three souls worth saving by sunrise or else the city will be destroyed. This musical comedy myth celebrates '70s New York in all its grungy glory—taking you from Central Park to Times Square to CBGBs to, of course, the legendary Studio 54."
