Heath Saunders Joins Cast of WILDWOOD By Michael Kimmel & Elliah Heifetz At 54 Below
FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Wildwood, a new musical created and written by Michael Kimmel (Songbird, The Last Goodbye) with music and lyrics by Elliah Heifetz (Dust Can't Kill Me) on November 7, 2018, 9:30pm. In the 1950's, Wildwood NJ was known as "The Las Vegas of the East." For three months a year, this small south Jersey town turned into the biggest party of the summer. Everything converged in Wildwood- The Rat Pack, doo wop, soul, and the beginnings of rock and roll. Inspired by Tennessee Williams' Sweet Bird of Youth, Beach Party movies, and Amy Winehouse, Wildwood is about the excitement and corruption of hope and promise in the 1950's, and how we try to move forward after the neon goes out.
The evening will feature Heath Saunders (The Great Comet, Newton's Cradle, Jesus Christ Superstar Live on NBC), Amy Spanger (Rock of Ages, Wedding Singer, Elf), Renée Albulario (Here Lies Love), Graham Rowat (Sunset Boulevard, The Boys in the Band), Jeremy Woodard (School of Rock), Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening), Kacie Sheik (Hair, Songbird), Deon'te Goodman (Songbird), Andrew Kober (Shakespeare in the Park's Twelfth Night), Kelly Karbacz (Orange Is The New Black, Songbird), Ines Nassara (Ford's Theatre), Max Sangerman (Smokey Joe's Cafe), Sydney Torin Shepherd (First Date), Jane Bruce (Jagged Little Pill), Melissa Rose Hirsch (The Mad Ones) and Zachary Francis Stewart (The Bad Years).
Produced by Sara DeViney.
