WILDWOOD By Michael Kimmel & Elliah Heifetz Takes the Stage at Feinstein's/54 Below
FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Wildwood, a new musical created and written by Michael Kimmel (Songbird, The Last Goodbye) with music and lyrics by Elliah Heifetz (Dust Can't Kill Me) on November 7, 2018, 9:30pm. In the 1950's, Wildwood NJ was known as "The Las Vegas of the East." For three months a year, this small south Jersey town turned into the biggest party of the summer. Everything converged in Wildwood- The Rat Pack, doo wop, soul, and the beginnings of rock and roll. Inspired by Tennessee Williams' Sweet Bird of Youth, Beach Party movies, and Amy Winehouse, Wildwood is about the excitement and corruption of hope and promise in the 1950's, and how we try to move forward after the neon goes out.
The evening will feature Amy Spanger (Rock of Ages, Wedding Singer, Elf), Renée Albulario (Here Lies Love), Graham Rowat (Sunset Boulevard, The Boys in the Band), Jeremy Woodard (School of Rock), Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening), Kacie Sheik (Hair, Songbird), Deon'te Goodman (Songbird), Andrew Kober (Shakespeare in the Park's Twelfth Night), Jason "SweetTooth" Williams (Be More Chill) and Kelly Karbacz (Orange Is The New Black, Songbird).
Wildwood is directed by Sr?a Vasiljevi? with music direction by Andy Roninson.
Produced by Sara DeViney.
