Broadway And Television Performers To Join Producer, Peter William Dunn, For Birthday Celebration Show
Producer Peter Dunn (So You Think You Can Belt, TRL: Total Request Live, GAYS: The Series) is coming out from behind the scenes and hitting the stage for a one- night- only performance of Thank You, Next - a late night with Peter William Dunn" at The West End Lounge, on Saturday February 10th at 8 PM. The night will be raising money for The Trevor Project, a non profit organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among LGBT. The evening will feature a variety of tribute performances by artists from across the entertainment spectrum, with music ranging from show tunes to pop mashups from standards to new arrangements and original music-all in honor of Dunn's upcoming birthday.
"I am not a singer, and I have terrible taste in boys, but I DO have great taste in music, great taste in talent, and great taste in booze," jokes Dunn. "I am super excited to celebrate my birthday by doing what I love: creating musical art with some of the most talented people I know, and some of the most talented people on this earth."
Dunn will be joined by a phenomenal roster of special guests including: Alex Newell (Once On This Island, Fox's Glee) Derek & Selda (Grind), Natalie Weiss (Everyday Rapture, Les Miserables, American Idol and YouTube's Breaking Down the Riffs), new funk boyband The Bathhouse Boys, and some of the best up and coming rising stars NYC has to offer, including Megan Allen, Kathryn Francisco, Adelaide James, Andrea Levinsky, Ciana Miceli, Samantha Rhea Parrish, Morgan Reilly, Angelica Rodriguez, and Nya Trysha.
"What I love most about what I do is getting to know fresh, new, remarkable talent and working with them to truly embrace the importance of their art and of being true to themselves," says Dunn. "This city is hard and can easily get you down, so having a safe space to thrive, feel genuinely appreciated and live your truth is so, so important... also, did I mention my entire show is a drinking game?"
