The October 9–14 concerts are conceived and directed by Feinstein’s/54 Below Creative and Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper. All of the material included in the evening has gone unrecorded, and has never been performed in public.
In addition to cut songs from Rent and tick tick…BOOM, as well as Larson’s unproduced musicals 1984 and Superbia, the concert will include material Larson wrote for theatrical revues and the radio.
The lineup of performers includes Nick Blaemire (Godspell), Lauren Marcus (Be More Chill, Beatsville), Andy Mientus (NBC's Smash, Spring Awakening), Destinee Rea (Amélie, Dreamgirls), and George Salazar (Be More Chill, The Lightning Thief). They will be backed by music director-orchestrator Charlie Rosen and a five-piece band.
For tickets, ranging $50–$100, visit 54below.com/feinsteins. In the spirit of Rent, which offered groundbreaking $20 rush tickets, Feinstein's/54 Below will make a limited number of $20 tickets available for each performance via a special lottery. Details will be announced at a later date.
