Fankhauser, Coleman, Clarke to Sing from THREE POINTS OF CONTACT at Feinstein's/54 Below

Very Intense Productions presents Songs from THREE POINTS OF CONTACT, a new musical by Ryan Scott Oliver. The evening will be presented at 54 Below (254 West 54th Street, NYC), on Monday, April 30 at 7:00pm and 9:30pm. Marshall Pailet (Baghdaddy) directs.

The cast will include Britney Coleman (Sunset Blvd.), Ben Fankhauser (Newsies), Katie Rose Clarke (Miss Saigon), Eric William Morris (Be More Chill), Blaine Krauss (Natasha, Pierre...), Emily Rogers (If/Then), and Pomme Koch (The Band's Visit), with Ian Fairlee, Mary Claire Miskell, David Park and Bethany Perkins in the ensemble.

Music Director Joshua Zecher-Ross leads a 7-piece band featuring Allison Seidner, Jeremy Yaddaw, Matt Hinkley, Joseph Wallace and Hiroko Taguchi.

The story of Three Points of Contact revolves around newlyweds "Pooch" and Amy Harvey, who are proud of their progressive views on sex and marriage and anxious for their forthcoming child. When they miscarry and struggle to conceive again, their marriage (and their sex-life) strains to the brink; so much so that when Amy re-deploys for her second tour of Iraq and Pooch takes on an attractive pupil, they must confront the question:

"In a world where most marriages end in divorce ...Who wants to be like most marriages?"

Tickets are $30-45 and are now on sale and are available for purchase on the 54 Below Website, 54below.com.

Ryan Scott Oliver is the composer-lyricist fashioning epic dramas, Gothic thrillers, and high-octane rock and roll into exhilarating new musicals. He was called "the future of Broadway... a major new voice in musical theatre" (Entertainment Weekly) and is "shaking up musical theater with his dark, twisted and genius work ... [Oliver] could very well be musical theater's answer to an auteur filmmaker or a gothic novelist" (Huffington Post). He is the winner of a Larson Grant, Rodgers Award, New Musicals Awards from Weston Playhouse, Pace University, and the recipient of a Lortel Award Nomination as well as numerous fellowships, residencies and ASCAP awards. He wrote the music and lyrics for Jasper in Deadland (off-Broadway; the 5th Avenue Theatre), 35mm: A Musical Exhibition; Darling; Mrs. Sharp; Otherbody, a brief musical allegory, and more. He is currently at work on ¡Havana! directed by Warren Carlyle, and his "Dogs Trilogy" of original musical commissions: We Foxes, Rope and Three Points of Contact. Find writings, videos, tweets, and more of his morbidly optimistic musings @ryanscottoliver on all platforms.

Oliver's shows include 35mm premiered in New York in March of 2012 with a sold-out run at the Galapagos Art Space starring Lindsay Mendez, Betsy Wolfe, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Ben Crawford and Alex Brightman, with an original cast recording on the Ghostlight label.

After its acclaimed 2014 off-Broadway run last year, Jasper In Deadland made regional premier this spring at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre in 2015.

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, is the new performance venue in the grand tradition of New York City nightlife. A few blocks from the heart of Times Square and just below the legendary Studio 54, 54 BELOW is a classically designed state-of-the art nightclub in the theatre district that hosts audiences with warmth and style. The venue provides a food and beverage menu from early evening through the wee hours of the morning that is worthy of the world-class entertainment on the stage. In their description of 54 BELOW, The New York Times writes "the club has the intimacy of a large living room with unimpeded views and impeccable sound; there is not a bad seat. Its sultry after-hours ambience is enhanced by brocade-patterned wall panels planted with orange-shaded lanterns. And the atmosphere is warmer and sexier than in Manhattan's other major supper clubs."
