Ali Stroker, Stephanie Gibson, and More to Perform OkayBetterBest In Concert
Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge directs the new musical.
OkayBetterBest, a new musical written by Rhonda Kess and Michael Weems and directed by Tony nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Ragtime), will be presented at Feinstein's/54 Below as a special concert on Tuesday, September 20, at 9:30pm.
OkayBetterBest brings the war of the sexes from NYC bars to the stage. The score, a mix of pop and musical theater, accompanies the characters as they endure the painful lows and blissful highs of dating in a digital age. The show asks: Can revenge be acquired by jilted women as they mercilessly seek a patsy for one night? Tricia and her girlfriends are out on the prowl, rebounding from past heartbreak. When Tricia's plans to find Mr. Right Now don't go as planned, the evening becomes a more personal battle. The concert will include selections from the new musical including "One More Round," "Just Like That," "Next," "Sweeter Than Sweet," "Never Too Old to Rock n' Roll," and others.
The cast includes Stephanie Gibson (Cinderella), L'ogan J'ones (The SpongeBob Musical), Julia Mattison (Godspell), Eric William Morris (Be More Chill), Stephanie Jae Park (The King and I), and Ali Stroker (Spring Awakening), with additional cast members to be announced soon.
