Jenna Leigh Green, Tim Realbuto & Dana Aber Set for #YESALLWOMEN RAISE YOUR VOICE
Big Thunder Productions' #YesAllWomen Raise Your Voice will be presented by the Tank on Friday, November 21 at 9:30 P.M., featuring a stellar lineup of performers including Wicked's Jenna Leigh Green, Wunderkind's creator and star Tim Realbuto, and emcee Dana Aber. From the hotbed of American theatre in New York City, Big Thunder Productions has cultivated the #YesAllWomen Raise Your Voice concert project hoping to connect performing arts communities around the country and give their voice to this immediate social issue of gender inequality. The concert of original songs will address the many complicated sides of the gender equality movement through the work of contemporary NYC composers and songs written specifically for the show.
Contributing musically to this new concert project are a vibrant group of hot composers, including Anna Jacobs, Rachel Peters, Katie Thompson, Bill Nelson, Joshua Cohen and Marisa Michelson, Nora Terzo, David Wolfson, Christina Capatides and Daniel Maté, among others.
The #YesAllWomen Raise Your Voice concert will also be presented in San Francisco, the nation's heart for social reform, in a joint venture with San Francisco Conservatory of Music alums and ACT MFA students. Big Thunder's #YesAllWomen Raise Your Voice concert is aiming to travel with its creator and director, Dana Aber, into multiple cities, and be performed by local talent in every venue, creating a unified theatrical experience in tandem with the #YesAllWomen message, linking artist to artist through common experiences and collective songs, creating solidarity and connecting people through a unified voice. More info on the San Francisco concert available online.
Big Thunder Productions is a production company committed to the creation and proliferation of new works, and has created 5 concerts of original musical theatre songs designed to share the music of over 50 composers during its first year. Big Thunder believes theatre is an American experience, and is happy that this next collaborative project addresses a very American issue.
