Both Sides Now
April 28, 2018
You’ve seen him in The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical and Les Misérables, now get ready to see Chris McCarrell back at Feinstein’s/54 Below!
Coming off his sold out solo concert debut and his beloved Christmas concert (Christmas Carols with Chris McCarrell), Chris will be testing new waters at Feinstein’s/54 Below with his most personal songs to date. Come join him as he tackles love, art, and his newfound romance with the Catskills. An epic coming of age story and the music that inspired it all.
Both Sides Now – A modern musical odyssey of times so charged, it led a young actor to simplify his role within it. The onstage cultural chaos will include everything from guitar led pageant shows, to rap battles with the likes of Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, and Taylor Swift. The evening burns itself out to embers of vocoded meditations, Alan Watts sermons, Joni Mitchell piano reflections, and lush orchestrations of Stephen Sondheim. Joshua Stephen Kartes, one of New York’s most renown cabaret arrangers will head a 5-piece band including electric guitars, drum pads, and synthesizers. Jill Paice of American in Paris will be called in for a Sondheim duet, with features of Adrian Bumpas, Jessica Joy Dyer, Julia Hines, Jillian Kates, Jude McCormick, and Rosie Upton throughout the night. A new take on a new era, join Chris for a creative, modern, and diverse retelling of what has been a turbulent, and renewing time for America and New York City these past few impactful years.
