Photo Flash: A LITTLE NEW MUSIC Returns to the Catalina for Their 15th Edition

A LITTLE NEW MUSIC returned to the historic Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood on Monday, August 21st with its fifteenth concert featuring emerging musical theatre artists. Co-hosts, Tony Award winner Marisa Jaret Winokur (HAIRSPRAY) and Ryan O'Connor ("BIG LITTLE LIES," "LADYWATCH" podcast), delighted the audience with context and humor between numbers. Gregory Nabours and the dynamic ALNM band (Eric McCann, Emily Rosenfield, and Greg Sadler) provided excellent backup to the singers performing the next generation of musical theatre songs.

The show kicked off with Sari Rose Barron singing Anna K. Jacobs' song of new motherhood, "Lullaby", followed by Sittichai Chaiyahat performing Rosser & Sohne's lovely "Nothing More," and Zach Spound's world premiere of his original piece, "The Right Thing" (from the point of view of James Comey)! Next, twelve year old Hayley Shukiar brought down the house with Barnett & Homokay's "The Irrational Song," followed by Adam J. Rineer's intense "She Doesn't Know Me," sung by Amber Hurst-Martin.

The evening kept rocking with a special guest performance from the ALNM Award winner for Outstanding Songwriting at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, TURBULENCE, from acclaimed LA-based musical comedy collective, Robot Teammate. Pamela Paul performed her original song, "Widow Blues," with Sam Morgan on sax, followed by the duo of Justin Michael Wilcox and Marc Ginsburg as a pair of pigs on an adventure in "Dirt of Our Own" by Rob Rokicki. Broadway's Jason Michael Snow delivered the torch-y "The Mercy of Love" from Mark Sonnenblick's MIDNIGHT AT THE NEVER GET, followed by Matt Gould performing his original song about these political times,"Echo". To close out the evening, the audience was given a sneak peek of Celebration Theatre's upcoming West Coast premiere of THE VIEW UPSTAIRS by Max Vernon, featuring Matthew Hancock, Darren Bluestone, Joey Ruggiero, Benai Boyd, Rehyan Rivera, Jake Anthony, Chala Savino, and Pip Lilly.
