F. Michael Haynie and Sarah Beth Pfeifer to Star in RELATIVITY Concert at 54 Below This Month
54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents "RELATIVITY: A New Musical In Concert" on August 28th at 9:30pm. From the award-winning team of Rob Rokicki (The Lightning Thief) and Michael Ruby (Ethan Frome), and featuring F. Michael Haynie (Wicked, Holler If You Hear Me) and Sarah Beth Pfeifer (Legally Blonde, The Lightning Thief), the show makes its New York debut following its recent development at the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival (Merry-Go-Round Playhouse).
With music and lyrics by Rokicki and book and additional lyrics by Ruby, RELATIVITY is an exciting, funny and poignant new pop/rock musical about siblings and perspective. The show follows the characters Derek and Reagan, twins who discover over the course of a decade that there are two things no one can ever escape: time and family.
