Georgia Stitt, Lucas Steele, and More Join New Songs Now Series
Songwriters will test out new material for audiences at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.
Rattlestick Playwrights Theater has announced the lineup of performers and postshow facilitators set for New Songs Now, an unplugged concert series, presented in association with New Neighborhood and Rosalind Productions, Inc. The series will run July 22-26.
New Songs Now gives inventive songwriters the opportunity to test out new material in a low-key, fun environment. Each night, two different songwriters share selections of their work, followed by a conversation with the artists to demystify the songwriting process.
The 2018 New Songs Now songwriters include Jen Goma (Smiley Face), Georgia Stitt (Snow Child), Rebecca Hart (The Cabaret at the End of the World), Or Matias (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), Nehemiah Luckett (Brick by Brick), Melissa Li (Interstate), Simone Allen (The Cher Show), Helen Park (KPOP), LPfunK (Once), and Tony nominee Lucas Steele (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812).
Postshow facilitators include director Anne Kauffman (Mary Jane), Tony-winning writer Lisa Kron (Fun Home), writer Paul Scott Goodman (Bright Lights Big City), producer Natasha Sinha (associate director LCT3), and playwright, actor, and singer-songwriter Eisa Davis (Passing Strange). The lineup is subject to change.
