Fallout: In Concert will showcase songs from a Fallout, a new musical by Nick Blaemire and Kyle Jarrow. The show is the story of two neighboring families in suburban Westchester during the thirteen days of 1962's Cuban Missile Crisis. As the world teeters on the edge of nuclear war, they struggle with the fact that life as they know it has come to an end. The result is a fantastical, surrealist exploration of America at a pivotal moment in history-a lush rock-based tale about fears, hopes and heroes.

Kyle Jarrow's projects include the musical Noir (with Duncan Sheik) and the upcoming Broadway-bound Spongebob The Musical. He won an OBIE Award for his Off-Broadway hit play A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant and plays frequently with his band Sky-Pony. According to The New Yorker, "Mr. Jarrow is the kind of writer who likes to provoke people." Nick Blaemire is the author of the musicals A Little More Alive (Kansas City Rep, Barrington Stage), Soon(Signature Theatre), and Glory Days (Broadway). As an actor, his credits include Godspell and Cry-Baby on Broadway, as well as Found The Musical, Dogfight, and The Black Suits Off-Broadway.

Tickets: $35-70 at

For his debut at Feinstein's/54 Below, Kyle Dean Massey, star of Broadway's Next to Normal, Wicked, and Pippin, as well as the ABC series Nashville, looks back, not at the things that were, but at the things that weren't. Come listen to Kyle share songs he heard nightly but never sang himself, the ones he played on guitar or belted in the shower, the ones that made him dance or mended his broken heart ... all songs he was not able to share the way he wanted until now.

Where: 54 Below (254 W 54th Street)

When: February 12th at 9:30 PM

Jasper In Deadland, with music and lyrics by Ryan Scott Oliver and a book by Hunter Foster and Oliver, will be presented in concert, celebrating its album release!

Michael Haynie, John-Michael Lyles, and Frederick Hagreen.

Jasper in Deadland takes audiences on a mythological thrill-ride through the underworld. As teenage Jasper faces gods and monsters in search of his best friend (and true love) Agnes, he learns to let go of the demons of daily life and embrace the music within. With a pulsating contemporary score and vibrant roots in ancient Greek, Egyptian, Roman, and Norse legends and fables, this spine-tingling, hair-raising, heart-stirring show explores what it means to be truly alive.

The concert will be directed by Brandon Ivie.
