On Wednesday, April 21, Matt Doyle played two concerts at Joe's pub, where he was joined by special guests Jennifer Damiano (Tony nominee for Next to Normal), Emma Hunton (Spring Awakening) and Wesley Taylor (The Addams Family, Rock of Ages) in the second performance. BroadwayWorld was there to capture the night.
Inspired by his passion for the up-and-coming writing talents of musical theatre, Matt's all-new concert highlights the most current, thrilling and innovative sounds of the genre. The show, which was part of Sh-K-Boom & Ghostlight Records' ongoing concert series, featured several songs by Kait Kerrigan & Brian Lowdermilk, Joe Iconis and Ryan Scott Oliver, as well as pieces by Paul Scott Goodman, Chris Miller & Nathan Tysen and a new song by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater.
Matt made his Broadway debut in Spring Awakening where he played the role of Hanschen and later assumed the role of Melchior in the show's national tour. He is well known for his appearances as Jonathan Whitney on the CW's Gossip Girl and also for his work on the studio recording of Bare: A Pop Opera. Matt most recently finished his run as Hugo Peabody in the Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie.
The band was led by Brian Lowdermilk and featured Craig Magnano (Guitar), Eric Day (Bass), Jeremy Yaddaw (Drums), Allison Seidner (Cello) and Kait Kerrigan (Violin), with a special guest musician appearance by Trapper Felides. The concert was directed by Travis Greisler and was produced by Katie Riegel / jokr productions and Noah Cornman / Sh-K-Boom & Ghostlight Records.
