THE PERFECT FIT, THE MUSICAL: A PERFECTLY DISTANT CONCERT to Stream From Shubert Studios at New World Stages

The Perfect Fit, the Musical: A Perfectly Distant Concert, adapted from the original musical from 14 year old musical sensation Joshua Turchin, will livestream from the Shubert Studios at New World Stages in New York City on Sunday, November 15th at 7pm EST.

The Perfect Fit the Musical explores the drive of teenage professional performers hoping to avoid the dreaded theatrical dead zone as they navigate through a web of stage parents, dance classes, and auditions, while their stories unfold trying to find their perfect fit.

The concert will feature original arrangements and orchestrations from Joshua Turchin's award-winning sold-out run last summer at the Rave Theater Festival in New York City.

The virtual cast members include Fabi Aguirre (Les Miserables, On Your Feet, Acapop! Kids), Noah Baird (Matilda, A Christmas Story Live, A Christmas Story the Musical Broadway National Tour, DuckTales), Audrey Bennett (Frozen, Amelie, The Sound of Music Broadway National Tour), Swayam Bhatia (The Mighty Ducks, Really Rosie, Succession), Lily Brooks O'Briant (The Big Show Show, Matilda Broadway National Tour), Alexa Lasanta (The Sound of Musical Broadway National Tour), Luke Naphat (Trevor, Bubble Guppies), Ava Ulloa (Matilda, The Affair), Katherine Xu, Alemay Fernandez and Maya Raisha.

"Our industry has to adapt during the pandemic so people can continue to work, but in a safe way," says Joshua Turchin. "I wanted to create a way to give access to our Broadway community in a way that has never been done before with a live stream concert of my music. Just like people have enjoyed both going to sporting events and watching them from home, there is no reason Broadway can't be enjoyed the same way."

Joshua Turchin is best as a multi-hyphenate; he's a singer, actor, dancer, musician, composer, music director, accompanist, and writer, and currently host and creator of The Early Night Show, an international webseries and podcast on Broadway Podcast Network. He was most recently in rehearsal for the NYC premiere of Trevor the Musical prior to the "pause" due to COVID-19.

Prior to that, Joshua finished his run as the first young adult to ever be a part of a Forbidden Broadway cast and received rave reviews as an original cast member in Forbidden Broadway: The Next Generation. He recently had his original musical, THE PERFECT FIT, premiere at the Rave Theater Festival in NYC where it won awards for Outstanding Book of a Musical and Outstanding Ensemble.
