Megan Hilty, Julia Murney, Joe Iconis and more will be part of "Rob Rokicki and Friends" at The Cutting Room On August 29. An award-winning songwriter and performer, Rob writes musicals and songs described by Broadway Spotted as "a soulful swirl of rock and comedy...urgent songs about neurotic girls, wild odes to ape-like creatures, and so much more." Fred Ebb winner Adam Gwon says, "Rob's songs live at that perfect intersection of musical theater and radio rock -- these are characters that get you in the gut, and that you want to listen to over and over again."
Additional cast and band will include: Micah Burgess, Nick Dalton (Legally Blonde), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Rent), Seth Eliser, Amanda Flynn (Wicked ), Brian Gallagher (Jekyll & Hyde), Molly Hager (Fat Camp), Emma Hunton (Spring Awakening), Satchel Jones, Zach Jones (One Man, Two Guvnors), Rachel Lee, Lauren Marcus (The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks), Ashley Moniz(Sister Act), Luca Padovan (Newsies) Mike Rosengarten, Erica Swindell (Once), and more to come!
