Photo Coverage: Morgan James, Adam Kantor Sing Jeremy Schonfeld at Joe's Pub
Acclaimed singer/songwriter Jeremy Schonfeld returned to Joe's Pub last night bringing his exciting hybrid brand of rock/theatrical piano man storytelling for one night only. Joining him were Lilli Cooper (Spring Awakening), Adam Kantor (Rent) and Morgan James (Godspell).
The evening celebrated his just-released new concept album Iron & Coal an autobiographical rock theatrical song cycle that's an intimate musical journey through the Holocaust's lingering emotional wounds on a survivor and his son.

Schonfeld is the first American composer-in-residence with Broadway in South Africa and is currently there conducting their January workshops while preparing his Joe's Pub concert.
When not composing or performing, Jeremy is active in helping young people achieve their goals in theatre through The Broadway Dreams Foundation-a premier performing arts training program. He proudly serves on the advisory board, is the musical director, a featured performer and teacher for the BDF; and wrote the foundation's theme song.
Schonfeld has contributed original music for numerous benefit concerts including Defying Inequality, Broadway in South Africa, The Pink Campaign on Broadway, and Broadway for a New America, among others. He has been the featured composer for Monday Night, New Voices and Cutting Edge Composers II. Jeremy's "Song for New Orleans," performed by Adam Pascal, is currently being used as part of a recruitment video for the American Red Cross.
