By Michael Gioia
Uncharted: Matthew Robinson, the first U.S. concert featuring the tunes of award-winning Australian composer-lyricist Matthew Robinson, will be held Sept. 12 at Ars Nova in NYC.
The 70-minute concert, set to begin at 8 PM, will include highlights of his work performed by Jeremy Kushnier (Jesus Christ Superstar), Kevin Massey (Memphis), Ryah Nixon (9 to 5 national tour) and Alexandra Socha (Spring Awakening).
Mentored by Stephen Schwartz, Robinson is currently in New York City presenting developmental readings of his third musical Atlantis. As part of the mentorship process with Schwartz, Robinson presented two readings of his second musical Happy People at Playwrights Horizons. He is also the recipient of the UTAS/Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award for the song "Dignity" from his first musical Metro Street. As an actor, Robinson appeared in the world premiere of his musical revue Sing On Through Tomorrow as well as The Pirates of Penzance and A Little Night Music at the Sydney Opera House.
