Pomme Koch, Lauren Zakrin, and More to Ask WHAT THE F*CK IS GOING ON at 54 Below
FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents "What The F*ck Is Going On: In Concert," a new musical by award-winning composer Zach Spound. Part cabaret, part rock concert, and part investigative journalism, this wild and though-provoking evening of songs brings the world of contemporary journalism to life as we follow a young woman's journey to the heart of the Russia Investigation. Along the way, familiar figures including Rachel Maddow, Robert Mueller, Kamala Harris, James Comey, and Sally Yates help put the pieces together by telling their stories. It's a timely, cathartic, one-of-a-kind musical experience that, in an era when asking questions is an act of resistance, celebrates the necessity and badass-ery of America's journalists. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Swing Left and Families Belong Together.
Featuring: Lauren Baez, Stefanie Brown, Peter Dunn, Pomme Koch (The Band's Visit), Clarissa Marie Ligon, Austin McPhee, Amanda Shechtman, Tristan J Shuler, and Lauren Zakrin (The Great Comet of 1812, Rock of Ages). Music and Lyrics by Zach Spound. Directed by Rebecca Kenigsberg.
