MEGA STAGE TUBE: Grace McLean, Zoe Sarnak & Kacie Sheik Play Joe's Pub
A triple bill of songwriters came together on November 4 for one night only in a celebration of what's to come in musical theater- the music of Grace McLean, Zoe Sarnak & Kacie Sheik. Performers included Rebecca Naomi Jones ( American Idiot, Murder Ballad), Allison Case (Hands on a Hardbody, Hair), Phoebe Strole (Spring Awakening), and many more. Check out highlights below!
Grace McLean began writing ditties as a remedy for her pickled love life and has developed a sparse, plunky style that underlines her often irreverent, always truthful lyrics. In addition to playing with her band, Grace McLean and Them Apples, Grace is performing in the pop opera Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.
