Anastasia Barzee, Joe Carroll and More Set for PAST IS PRESENT: THE LYRICS OF SARAH REBELL at the Met Room, 3/24

Everything old is new again--and vice versa-at PAST IS PRESENT, up-and-coming lyricist SARAH REBELL's Metropolitan Room debut. By turns hilarious and touching, sexy and historical, this concert features Rebell's lyrics paired with the music of promising young composers including DANNY ABOSCH(Fancy Nancy), WILL BUCK, ELIZABETH HAGSTEDT, TERESA LOTZ, MADELINE MYERS (Legends and Lore) and WILLEM OOSTHEUYSEN.

As sung by Broadway talents ANASTASIA BARZEE (Urinetown, Henry IV), ALEX BRIGHTMAN (Big Fish, Wicked), JOE CARROLL (Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet), KATE LOPREST (Under My Skin, First Date) SAMANTHA MASSELL (Encores! Little Me, Baz Luhrmann's La Boheme), NADIA QUINN (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), KATIE THOMPSON (Giant) and REMY ZAKEN (Spring Awakening, Freckleface Strawberry), PAST IS PRESENT transcends era to deliver contemporary tunes with a classic flair... and classic-sounding songs with the spunk of today.

Featuring unexpected characters like a lusty Mona Lisa, a neurotic skier, and the morbid and romantic son of an opera singer, Rebell's lyrics create worlds heartfelt and silly; places moving and irreverent. Fresh from NYU's prestigious graduate musical theatre writing program, Rebell is a new talent poised to take New York by a special, surprising kind of storm. Catch the show on March 24th at 9:30 only!

JEN WINEMAN (Bubble Boy, F$%king Up Everything) directs, with musical direction by KAREN DRYER. (The 25th Annual Putnumn County Spelling Bee, nat'l tour).
