The National Alliance for Musical Theatre (NAMT) will present its Songwriter Spotlight concert at 54 Below on February 11 at 9:30pm. The concert will highlight three songwriting teams who have been part of NAMT's Festival of New Musicals: Sara Cooper & Zachary Redler
(The Memory Show
, to be seen Off Broadway this spring at Transport Group
), Michael Weiner
& Alan Zachary
(the Broadway-bound First Date
and Secondhand Lions
) and host Andrew Lippa
(The Addams Family
, The Wild Party
and Big Fish
). The writers, joined by Broadway talents, will sing songs from their Festival shows and upcoming projects, perhaps sharing a behind-the-scenes story or two along the way.
A portion of the proceeds will support NAMT, a not-for-profit organization, whose programs include writer initiatives and the 25th Annual Festival of New Musicals, which takes place on October 17-18 at New World Stages.
NAMT's Festival of New Musicals has showcased over 200 shows by over 400 writers over the last 24 years. Musicals we have helped develop include Children of Eden, The Drowsy Chaperone, Thoroughly Modern Millie,Songs for A New World, Honk!, See Rock City and Other Destinations and Ordinary Days.
Come support NAMT with an evening of song and celebrate these talented writers from the NAMT Festival!www.namt.org
