Austin Nuckols & Lily Dwoskin to Present PLEASE LIKE US at The Green Room 42 This Week

Musical Writing team Austin Nuckols and Lily Dwoskin are showcasing an evening of their musical songs in "Please Like Us" at Green Room 42 on January 19, 2023 at 7pm EST.

"Two talented, underfunded, and overeducated New York City songwriters will present an evening full of fun, heart wrenching, and very stupid songs in "Please Like Us: An Evening of Nuckols and Dwoskin." Please like them. Really. We promise you will have a good time. Or at least, a time. Featuring a truly stellar cast directed by Mika Kauffman (Turning Krasniqi, The Civility of Albert Cashier), it will be a spectacular night of songs you'll be singing on the way out, for better or worse. Please come see our show. We'll do your laundry."

Featuring performers Trevor Bunce, Ashley Chiu, DeShawn Jenkins, Kate Loprest, Mark Mendez Muños, and Amy Weintraub.

Directed by Mika Kauffman and featuring band members Austin Nuckols (Piano), Ana Lei (Cello), Jacob Ott (Bass), Justin Novello (Drums).

Tickets are available online for $29 via the Green Room 42 Website.
