Chris Rayis to Make New York Theatre Debut with EX NIHILO at Feinstein's/54 Below

Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Chris Rayis in "Chris Rayis: Ex Nihilo" on January 2nd at 7 pm. This show marks the debut of Chris Rayis' work in the New York theatre scene.

His brilliant musicianship and meaningful content set him apart as a leading composer of new works for the musical theatre stage. His storytelling encompasses everything from the tempestuous relationship of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow to the heroic accomplishments of John Glenn to the hard struggles of a coal mining community in rural West Virginia.

Each of his songs holds a key to more fully understanding the depth and complexity of the powerful stories he chooses to tell, and his melodies are not soon forgotten. Join us for an evening of beautiful new works and leave inspired by the bright future Mr. Rayis surely has in store.

Mr. Rayis is proud to share the stage with A.J. Shively, (Bright Star and La Cage Aux Folles), Lora Lee Gayer, (Follies, Doctor Zhivago, and Holiday Inn), Maggie McDowell, (Disaster), Douglas Waterbury-Tieman, (The Robber Bridegroom), Robby Haltiwanger (Ghost, The Astonishing Times of Timothy Cratchit), Annabelle Fox, Meghan Glogower, Emma Stratton, and Jessie Davidson.
