The Jonathan Larson Project to Present Unheard Songs From Never-Produced Shows
Jonathan Larson is the famed creator of Rent and Tick, Tick...BOOM!
Feinstein's/54 Below will present The Jonathan Larson Project October 9-14. An evening of unheard work from the creator of Rent and Tick, Tick...BOOM!, The Jonathan Larson Project will feature songs from never-produced shows like 1984, Superbia, and more.
The evening will also include cut songs from Larson's well-known works, tunes written for theatrical revues, and music written for the radio, some of which have never before been publicly performed or recorded. The Jonathan Larson Project is conceived and directed by Feinstein's/54 Below's creative and programming director Jennifer Ashley Tepper, who has spent over 200 hours researching Larson's work through the collection at the Library of Congress, the floppy discs at the New York Public Library, personal interviews, and more.
The event will feature Nick Blaemire (Godspell), Lauren Marcus (Be More Chill), Andy Mientus (Les Misérables), Destinee Rea (Amélie), George Salazar (The Lightning Thief), and a few special guests to be announced, backed by a five-piece band under the musical direction of Charlie Rosen (Prince of Broadway), who will also provide original orchestrations.
