featuring Kerstin Anderson, Nick Blaemire, Ethan Carlson, Ben Crawford, Jessica Crouch, Jason Gotay, Derek Klena, John-Michael Lyles, Julia Mattison, Lindsay Mendez, Katie Thompson, Betsy Wolfe & Zack Zaromatidis at Lincoln Center's American Songbook
Composer-lyricist Ryan Scott Oliver and a boisterous group of his most gifted friends kick off American Songbook 2016 with a free opening night concert. Called “the future of Broadway…a major new voice in musical theater” (Entertainment Weekly) and “the center of Broadway’s millennial talents” (Playbill), Oliver’s distinct work combines a powerful pop influence, rich harmony, and stories steeped in myth. His original musicals include Darling, a Jazz Age retelling of Peter Pan, and the “playful, silly-smart” riff on Orpheus, Jasper in Deadland (New York Times). His genre-bending multimedia 35MM: A Musical Exhibition is currently performed worldwide. Oliver is currently crafting a trilogy of new American musicals that includes We Foxes, a Southern Gothic thriller, and Rope (for Grove Entertainment), which follows the extraordinary journey and unlikely bond of two boys during the Civil War. Also featuring Ian Fairlee, Hanako Greensmith, Christopher Isolano, Isaac James, Travis Kent, Aury Krebs, Tatiana Lofton, Jonathan Miller, Mary Claire Miskell, David Park, Bethany Perkins, Saidu Sinlah, Linnea Sumner, and Daniel Yearwood. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. This concert will be livestreamed. Cameras will be present. Ryan Scott Oliver
