Donna Murphy HEADLINES EPIC DUETS, MAY 23 AT 7:00PM

Epic Theatre Ensemble presents Epic Duets, an evening to benefit Epic's nationally-recognized education and college access initiatives. This one-night-only event will feature fine dining and fabulous duets of Epic's students alongside renowned performers like Donna Murphy (2-time Tony Award winner, recently Hello, Dolly!), Jacob Ming-Trent (Hands on a Hardbody, Shrek), Gizel Jiménez (Miss You Like Hell), and Daphne Rubin-Vega (Miss You Like Hell).

At Epic, we believe in the voices of young people. We believe that their optimism, energy, and insightfulness, can, when harnessed, lengthen the arc of social justice and provide massive uplift to their communities. We also believe that participation in theatre is a uniquely powerful tool to help young people discover their voices, especially for those who have long lacked access in under-resourced communities and under-funded schools.

The Epic theatre experience goes beyond self-expression; it is a young person's Epic story of "firsts". For most, Epic is the first time they join a group, collaborate on a project, adhere to a schedule, raise their voice, tell their story and create beauty, not to mention set foot on a stage and act in a play they built.

Epic's impact doesn't stop there. In fact, the Epic magic stays with our students as they leave the high-school stage and begin a life of new firsts - from that first day of college, to the first day of a new job - and then onto to becoming employees, supervisors, parents and citizens of the world, often relying on their Epic "firsts" as a foundation. Epic provides the stage where firsts can emerge, giving students the confidence, perspective, experience and opportunity for a more successful future. Young people who work with Epic over four years of high school have a stunning college attendance and retention rate of 98%, more than double that of their peers. It costs Epic only $1,250 to empower a young person for four years inside and beyond high school, ultimately helping these students matriculate into college. We are proud to report that the average Epic alumnus receives over $25,000 in merit-based financial aid towards their higher education, yielding a 20x return on investment.

THIS IS A PRIVATE EVENT.

By purchasing tickets for this Special Event you agree to share your contact information with the hosts of this event.

$150-$200 cover charge. $250 VIP seating. $325 premium seating. 2 drink or $20 food & beverage minimum. All tickets include a two course prix-fixe and one signature cocktail.

THE WRITERS LAUNCH WITH Jordan Silver, HEATHCLIFF SAUNDERS, AND MORE, MAY 25 AT 11:30PM

Late Night at Feinstein's/54 Below continues its new series that is unlike anything else at the venue: The Writers Launch!

Once a month, expect the unexpected when writers, both emerging and established, drop by to present an original tune. Some of the songs will be from musicals and some won't. Some will be performed by an actor and some by the writers themselves. Some will be brand new and some will be favorites from years ago. The twist? You'll find out three of those writers in advance - and 10 will remain a surprise until showtime.

At the top of the night, any writers wishing to present work will enter a lottery. Names will be chosen at random to present a song at the venue. Then, get ready to hop onstage and play your original number for a readied audience of musical theatre lovers. Lottery must be entered in the lobby by 11:20pm.

The cover charge is $10 for all seats for the first Writers Launch events. Though no guest is guaranteed to present a song, we encourage all interested writers to arrive readied to play. A piano will be provided. If you have any questions about participating as a writer, email producer Anthony Crouchelli at anthonycrouchelli@gmail.com.
