Stars from HAMILTON, GROUNDHOG DAY and More Set for REBEKAH M. ALLEN: BAD YEAR/GOOD MUSIC at the Beechman
Stars from Broadway's HAMILTON, GROUNDHOG DAY, THE BOOK OF MORMON, and FUN HOME will gather for "Bad Year/Good Music," featuring the work of emerging musical theater writer Rebekah M. Allen (L.A. Stage Alliance Ovation Winner, Best Lyrics/Composition for WE ARE THE TIGERS).
With direction and music direction respectively by long-time collaborators Michael Bello and Patrick Sulken and additional orchestrations by Max Gordon, this evening will provide everything from rollicking parody, to emotional social explorations, to a gender-bent twist on the high-belting cheerleaders of WE ARE THE TIGERS.
Proceeds from the concert will go toward Charlottesville violence victim relief (gofundme.com/united-cville-victim-relief).
Performers include Jenny Rose Baker (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF), Gerard Canonico (GROUNDHOG DAY, AMERICAN IDIOT), Josh Daniel (BOOK OF MORMON), Alysha Deslorieux (ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, HAMILTON), Melissa Rose Hirsch, Adam Kaplan (KINKY BOOTS, NEWSIES), Caroline Lellouche (ANNIE), Michael Linden (SPRING AWAKENING), Angelo McDonough, Tyler McKenzie (MATILDA, MAMMA MIA!), Jamen Nanthakumar, Marissa O'Donnell (SHREK THE MUSICAL, Lauren Patten (FUN HOME, THE WOLVES), George Psomas (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, SOUTH PACIFIC), Patrick Reilly (AFTERGLOW), Rob Rokicki (THE LIGHTNING THIEF), Celeste Rose, Jordan Silver, Kalyn West (GIGANTIC), and Chelsea Williams (IN TRANSIT, MAMMA MIA!).
