Gould (The Ferryman, Suffs), Bryson Olivo (Collisions original recording artist), Jillian Michelle Smith (Broadway Princess Party), and Matthew Harper Stevenson (Like the Wind), with music direction by Rai Arsa Artha. The band will also include Collard herself on percussion, Andrew Shield on guitar, and Tom Brody on bass.

Collisions: The Launch plays 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on January 3rd at 9:30. There is a $29-$67.50 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
