Off-Broadway News Patrick Olson to Merge Art, Science, and Music in New Show Emergence Off-Broadway

The work is headed to Pershing Square Signature Center following a sold-out run in Los Angeles.

Musician-scientist Patrick Olson is bringing Emergence to New York for an Off-Broadway run at The Pershing Square Signature Center, with performances beginning October 10 ahead of an October 25 opening night. The limited run will continue through January 7, 2024.

The work, which Olson describes as a "concert performance," blends art, science, and music in a monologue-rock concert-psychedelic trip featuring an ensemble of musicians, singers, and dancers. The unique experience includes original music, arena-level sound, and bold questions about the human experience and the dividing line between science and art. The New York run follows a sold-out limited engagement in Los Angeles.

Joining Olson will be vocalists Cherry Davis, Samara Brown, Miya Bass, and Bella Kosal; musicians Steven Styles, Nadav Hezi, Jordan Coker, and Thomas Nickell; and dancers Summer Sheldrick, Dana Liebezeit, and Lavy Cavaleire.

The creative team includes music producer Mike Avenaim; lighting directors Jordan Noltner of Wasted Potential; stylist Angela Aaron; LED visual designers FutureTalk Inc., Jonathon Corbiere, Tyler Sammy, and Wasted Potential's Nick Proctor; associate producer Nadav Hezi; and creative consultants Chloe Lowery and Dina Fanai. Robert Murray and Lisa Dozier Shacket are producing.
