Elon University Alumni to Present HELLO MY NAME IS... at 54 Below, 11/17
54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents VARIOUS ALUMNI OF ELON UNIVERSITY (THE CLASSES of 2005 - 2013) in "HELLO MY NAME IS..." on November 17th, 2013 at 11:30 PM. This concert revolves around the milestones AFTER graduation. Starting an artistic journey is not something taken lightly by any of us, and these songs are meant to tell the story of those that battle and persevere against less-than-90-seconds-in-the-room days, and something deep and destructive about a lonely moment in the city. All that, just to wake up the next morning and start again. All that, for 300 dollars a week, to do a revue in the middle of nowhere. All that, for the eventual Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Tour/Regional success of our entire cast. This is worth celebrating. This is a story worth singing. There's something exciting and terrifying and FEARLESS about what we do. So, we choose to revel in the struggle of being a 20-something, and share our stories through this concert.
About our participating artists: Conceived by Claire Manship and John Yi, both roommates and Elon alumni, this cast features the talents of some of the best and brightest young actors in New York City. Represented by various agencies, unions, and performance credits, the one thing that keeps this cast close is a mutual respect for each other's hard work, and a small liberal arts college in North Carolina: Elon University.
