Dee Hoty Appears in Nerd-Rock Musical ACADEMIA NUTS at Lincoln Center Tonight
A concert of songs from the new nerd-rock musical Academia Nuts, written by Becca Anderson, Dan Marshall, & Julian Blackmore, will be presented by Broadway's Future Songbook, tonight, January 28.
A stellar cast (including three-time Tony Award nominee Dee Hoty, Jennifer Noble (Ghost), Charissa Bertels (A Christmas Story), Melvin Tunstall III, Catherine Cheng Jones, Raja Burrows, Sean Patterson, Cathy Prince, and James LaRosa) will perform the majority of the songs in the show.
Academia Nuts tells the story of Maggie McCutter, an über-brainy home-schooler from Weiner, Arkansas. Maggie, along with her creepy siblings Mary and Joseph, and her ferociously evangelical mother Chrystal, are primed to win The National High School Quiz Bowl Championship at MIT. The top prize, a life-changing scholarship, will give Maggie a chance to break away from her extremist family and live the life of her dreams! However, all of this changes when Maggie falls, and falls hard for Tyler O'Neill, a football-loving slacker and member of the opposing team.
Star-crossed lovers, bleeding family secrets, and a nerd-off of epic proportions; these are just a few of the reasons why Academia Nuts may be...The Greatest Musical EVER WRITTEN...EVER!
The performance will take place tonight, January 28th at 6pm in the Bruno Walters Auditorium, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, 111 Amsterdam Ave. Admission is free.
Libretti, demos, scores, and other materials available for industry upon request. For more information about the show, visit www.academianutsthemusical.com or email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
