Andy Mientus, Krysta Rodriguez, Anthony Rapp and More Head to 54 Below for THE JONATHAN LARSON PROJECT

Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club, presents "The Jonathan Larson Project" October 9 - 14. Jonathan Larson wrote Rent and tick tick BOOM, the former a landmark Broadway game-changer and the latter a beloved musical gem. He was a brilliant, groundbreaking creator of musical theatre who died tragically at the age of 35, before seeing the worldwide acclaim his work would receive. Jonathan was posthumously awarded Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, and his songs have come to be treasured and performed in 25 languages, from Mexico to Japan to Italy, from summer camps to the silver screen to Broadway. But what about all of Jonathan's songs we've never heard? "The Jonathan Larson Project" is an evening of Jonathan's unheard work featuring songs from never-produced shows like 1984 and Superbia; songs that were cut from Rentand tick tick BOOM; songs written for theatrical revues and songs written for the radio; songs about politics and love and New York City; songs never before publicly performed or recorded.

"The Jonathan Larson Project" features Nick Blaemire (tick tick BOOM, Found,Godspell), Lauren Marcus (Be More Chill, Beatsville, Company), Andy Mientus (NBC's "Smash," Spring Awakening, Les Misérables), Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening, First Date,The Addams Family), and George Salazar (Be More Chill, The Lightning Thief, tick tick BOOM). Music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Charlie Rosen (Be More Chill, Prince of Broadway, Honeymoon in Vegas, Charlie Rosen's Broadway Big Band). Featuring a five-piece band including musical director Natalie Tenenbaum, Charlie Rosen, Cody Owen Stine, Megan Talay, and Marques Walls with Danielle Gimbal as copyist.

Each performance will feature a different special guest sharing a unique unheard Jonathan Larson song:

"The Jonathan Larson Project" is conceived and directed by Feinstein's/54 Below's Creative and Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper, who has spent over 200 hours researching Larson's work through the collection at the Library of Congress, the floppy discs at the New York Public Library, personal interviews, and more.

"The Jonathan Larson Project" thanks The Larson Family, Jonathan Mills, The New York Public Library, and The Library of Congress for their support of this event.
