Adam Guettel to Perform Five-Night Residency at New York's 54 Below
Composer/lyricist Adam Guettel will return to the New York stage for a five-night, seven-set residency at the new cabaret 54 Below in Manhattan's theater district. The residency runs from Tuesday, February 19, through Saturday, February 23, with two sets each on Friday and Saturday nights. The program will include both new songs and favorites from throughout Guettel's career.
"I disappeared in 2007," says Guettel. "Into the studio. Into five new shows: a fairy tale adventure, an invisible man, a love story, a thing about wanting to be good called Millions and an opera for the devil. With an insanely tight little band led by Kim Grigsby, with the incomparable singers Steven Pasquale and Whitney Bashor at my side, I’ll sing from these new shows. Steven and Whitney will sing from the old ones since that material is way too high for me now. I’m thrilled to try out new songs at 54 Below with such a brilliant group of musicians."
