Kennedy Caughell, Nora Schell, Matt Rodin and More to Star in Concert of Fringe-Winning FAR FROM CANTERBURY

The Green Room 42 presents FAR FROM CANTERBURY: In Concert on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 8:00 pm. Winner of 'Outstanding Overall Musical' at the 2015 New York Fringe Festival, FAR FROM CANTERBURY tells a reimagined version of "The Wife of Bath's Tale" from Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, and features book, music and lyrics by Danny K Bernstein (2017 Jonathan Larson Award Finalist), direction by Charlie Johnson (Beatsville, CHARLIE! Anything But Basic), and music direction by Jeff Cox. This new expanded story takes place Once Upon a time, in a land where fairy tales are considered current events, where we follow a shy young knight who dreams of one day having a fairy tale of his own. However, his world is shaken when he's suddenly accused of committing a violent crime against a princess from a neighboring kingdom. This concert presentation focuses on the first half of the story.

The concert will feature Will Carlyon (Cabaret, 2014 Revival), Kennedy Caughell (Great Comet), Nora Schell (Spamilton, 2017 Drama Desk Nomination), Katy Geraghty (Groundhog Day) TJ Wagner (Measure for Measure), Matt Rodin ('Red Carpet Challenge'), Bettina Bresnan (The Last Five Years), Mary Malaney (Men With Money, Carrie, Theatre Now New York), Evan Zimmerman (Delirium's Daughters), and Paul Louis Lessard (Open the Dark Door, Beatsville).

The concert will play one performance on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 8:00 pm at The Green Room 42, located on the 4th floor of YOTEL, on 42nd St. and 10th Ave. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at
