BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at the crew in rehearsal below!
Matt and Matte are New York based music theatre writers whose eclectic style melds an emotional fusion of folk, rock, soul, and Broadway pop. For their 54 Below concert debut, they bring original songs from two upcoming collaborations: the pop-rock opera CAKE, based on the writings of Marie Antoinette and the Marquis de Sade and an epic-folk adaptation of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables.
The evening also features new arrangements of songs from their musical Peter & I, which previously enjoyed a sold-out Off-Broadway run at the American Theatre of Actors as part of the Araca Project. Padgett, Dwan, Zirilli, and Kidwell are all reuniting after having headlined the 2011 production.
Musical Direction is provided by Matt Vinson with accompaniment by band members Micah Burgess (Guitar), Alisa Horn (Cello) and Jeremy Yaddow (Drums). The concert will also feature musical staging by Jennifer Jancuska. It is being produced by Lee Ann Gullie, Justin Nichols, and Rope Swing Entertainment.
