Joel B. New Is Trying Too Hard At Green Room 42
The American Theatre Wing's Jonathan Larson and MAC's John Wallowitch Award-winning songwriter Joel B. New presents an eclectic evening of his songs at The Green Room 42 on Saturday, October 6th at 9:30pm. Along with a lineup of singers from Broadway and beyond -- including Madge Dietrich (Kinky Boots), CK Edwards (Shuffle Along), Nikka Graff Lanzarone (Women On The Verge...), Victoria Huston-Elem (Finding Neverland), Travis Kent (Disaster!), Richard Riaz Yoder (Hello, Dolly!), Ben Roseberry (Gentleman's Guide...), Hansel Tan (The Four Immigrants), and Michael Winther (Fun Home) -- New will perform highlights from his diverse collection of projects, many of which appear on his forthcoming sophomore album, sardonically entitled Joel B. New Is Trying Too Hard. The evening features musical direction by Gillian Berkowitz (Avenue Q), with New co-directing alongside Robbie Rozelle (Songs From Inside My Locker).
New's musical theatre works include To Hell and Back, Mackenzie and the Missing Boy, Standalone: a song cycle, Agatha In The Attic, RSVP, and his latest musical comedy, Monkey Trouble Unleashed! His work has been seen and developed at Ars Nova, New York Theatre Barn, Prospect Theater Company, Musical Theatre Factory, Broadway au Carré in Paris, Upstairs at The Duplex, and the New York Musical Festival. He is also the creator and host of "Something New," which was named one of the Top 20 Podcasts for Theatre Fans by BroadwayWorld.com. Joel's first solo album Cabot Cove -- a collection of "theatre pop" songs inspired by the classic TV series Murder, She Wrote -- is available on Broadway Records.
