The third annual production of Unsung: A Night of Original Songs by New and Established Composers is back at Lucille Lortel Theater this December with a stellar cast of fifteen young performers and five special guests, including Spring Awakening's Wendla (Lea Michele) and Xanadu's Marty Thomas. This year's edition, 'Tis the Season to Be Naughty, will once again be directed by Phillip George, with musical direction by Tracy Stark and Michael Rider and choreography by Tralen Doler. The festival is produced by Todd Adamson and Stephanie Safko and their company Fantastic Feats Productions, alongside Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, who will benefit from the staged concert.
Unsung 2007: 'Tis the Season to Be Naughty features 6 men, Justin Buchs, Nick Dalton, Tim Dolan, Jonathan Reid Gealt, Timothy John Mandala and Matthew Naclerio, and seven women, Debora Avila, Amanda Brasher, Lea Cabrera, Bridie Carroll, Dana Musgrove, April Nixon and Darcy Wright. The show's young, ambitious producers, Todd Adamson and Stephanie Safko, will also be featured in the concert.
The music is a saucy mix of holiday themed tunes and an entertaining assortment of works from such composers as Andrew Lippa, Laurence O'Keefe, John Mercurio, Steven Lutvak, Bobby Cronin, Eli Bolin, Jonathan Reid Gealt, Barbara Anselmi, Doug Cohen, and the team of Joe Miloscia and Ken Kacmar.
In addition, this year's benefit will feature three more special guests: Brian Charles Rooney, Miguel Cervantes, and the Broadway Boys, who will contribute their time and talent to this year's concert.
