STAGE TUBE: Watch Highlights of Nick Cearley in '...AND THEN I WROTE...' at Feinstein's/54 Below
Nick Cearley recently brought '...And Then I Wrote A Song About It' in Concert, presented at FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, on May 13. Check out videos from the evening below!
Nick Cearley (The Skivvies, Pageant, All Shook Up, Buyer & Cellar) returned to New York to recreate his award-winning performance as Randall Klausner, a perspiring actor- singer-songwriter-dancer-secretary searching for love and fame in the late '70s/early '80s, as well as the colorful characters he meets along the way.
Set to the rhythm of the disco era and beyond, this earnest yet uproarious one-man musical finds Randall in the moments before he goes on Tom Snyder's Tomorrow Show. His life rushes before him like a groovy flashback, from toiling in his father's sausage business to dating someone in "soda espionage." Randall transforms all of his professional and personal misadventures into memorable and quirky songs as he ventures on his rocky road to self-acceptance and an audition for A Chorus Line.
With direction and book by Drama-Desk nominees Igor Goldin (Yank!, With Glee) and Eric H. Weinberger (Wanda's World), and songs by the songwriters who brought the '80s to 54 Below in Like You Like It (Daniel S. Acquisto & Sammy Buck), ...And Then I Wrote A Song About It is a universally heartfelt and hilarious look at finding success where you least expect it.
The show made its world premiere at Luna Stage in 2010 and has played at San Diego's Diversionary Theatre, as well as The Snapple Center and Theatre 80 in New York. The Luna production garnered Cearley an award as Best Actor in a Musical from The Newark Star Ledger, and Stage Scene LA awarded Cearley as Best Solo Performer and Goldin as Best Director for the Diversionary production.
Thomas Hodges music directed.
