I’ve got 2 songs that I’ll be performing in this concert series curated by friend, collaborator, and spectacular composer/lyricist Rachel Peters. Come on down to the Cornelia Street Cafe tonight at 8:30 and hear some great music by great writers and an awesome lineup of performers. See below for details.

OTHERWISE UNSUNG is a new series of original music theatre concerts at Cornelia Street Cafe curated by Rachel Peters.

No fake rock. No adorable twenty-somethings finding love in the big city. No meta-musicals that make fun of musicals. No style without substance. Just fresh, original work from honest, fearless, accomplished music theatre writers giving you their best. Come hear what you’re missing uptown.

We kick off our series with The Otherwise Unsung Sampler, a wildly eclectic evening of songs by Michelle Elliott and Danny Larsen, Michael R. Jackson and Anna K. Jacobs, Paul Leschen and Fred Sauter, Erin Markey, Robert Paterson, and Ronnie Reshef. Featuring Raja Burrows, Shannon Conley, Daniel Ihasz, Michael R. Jackson, Erin Markey, and Lori Wilner. Musical direction by Matt Castle.

$10 cover plus $10 minimum.
Call 212-989-9319 to make your reservation.

Hey ya’ll!

On Tuesday night at 8pm, I have the pleasure of participating in a concert at Ars Nova that kicks off my participation in the Uncharted Writer’s Group with composer Anna Jacobs. It’s kind of an official kickoff of our collaboration on a musical adaptation of the 2007 movie “Teeth.”We’ll be presenting a song from that as well as a new standalone song that we’ll be singing together! Helping us on the other songs out are Cortney Wolfson and Brad Greer.  Katya Stanislavskaya on keys.

We’ll also be joined by 5 other awesome writers:

Julia Meinwald, Gordon Leary, James Sasser, Charles Vincent Burwell, and Shaina Taub.

Tickets are $15 and it promises to be an exciting evening!

See you there!
