Blake Daniel, Bonnie Milligan, Max Chernin and More Explore #thestruggle in Concert Tonight
29 May 2014
The Music of Maglione and Ruiz: #thestruggle, a concert featuring the songs of new musical theatre composers David Maglione and Tomas Ruiz, is offered May 29 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City.
The 7 PM concert features performances from Blake Daniel (Spring Awakening), Julia Knitel (Bye Bye Birdie), Bonnie Milligan (Jasper in Deadland), Aaron Riesebeck (Academy), Max Chernin, Monet Julia Sabel, Melanie Brook, Spencer Kiely, Chris Frazier, Emma Love, Lena Grotticelli, Jackie Reynolds, Oliver Mayes, Adrian Rifat and Julie Galorenzo.
The evening promises "uplifting music for all those who are going through it. For those who have never 'gone through it,' a) you probably have and b) you will by the end of the night. The Music of Maglione and Ruiz: #thestruggle is your last chance to catch this duo before they 'go through it' on their first commissioned songwriting project this summer."
Maglione and Ruiz are the authors of Gypsy Housing: A Sorta Kinda Love Story, which was seen in January at the Manhattan Rep Theatre. The two played a sold-out concert in January at the Triad.
The Laurie Beechman Theatre inside the West Bank Café is located at 407 W. 42nd Street. There is a $10 cover plus a two-drink minimum. For more information and tickets, click here.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
