Susan Blackwell, Katie Thompson to Guest Star in Ryan O'Connor Eats His Feelings May 2
Written by O'Connor, the show is a musical journey of the author's experiences as a compulsive overeater and includes songs by Thompson, along with Ani DiFranco, Scott Alan, and more. O'Connor recently finished fourth in The Oprah Winfrey Network's Your OWN Show: Oprah's Search For the Next TV Star. During his run at the Beechman, O'Connor plans to interview Tony-nominated guests from the 2010-2011 Broadway season.
The show features musical direction by Gregory Nabours, and will feature back-up vocalists Lucas Coatney and Jason Powell.
The opening night's proceeds will benefit The Trevor Project, an organization determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including a nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.
