    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."

    Adam Guettel has released three recordings on Nonesuch Records: the Tony Award–winning musical The Light in the Piazza (2005), the song cycle Myths and Hymns (1999), and his critically acclaimed folk musical Floyd Collins (1997). His songs have been featured on three of Audra McDonald's Nonesuch albums, Build a Bridge, How Glory Goes, and Way Back to Paradise.

    David Byrne's American Utopia tour made its way to the UK for a week of sold-out shows, all met with rave reviews, starting with the NME's declaration: "The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time." "An unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre," exclaims the Telegraph. "This was something special." "One of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see," says the Independent. "Perfection." "Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman. "An extraordinary, ecstatic show."
