Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for the New York debut of Irish composer and songwriter Lauryn Gaffney. The performance will feature songs from international award winning musical Big Shot, described as “A theatrical storm worthy of a Tony Gong” (Irish Mirror). With its blend of energy and poignancy, along with all the show-stopping drama one would expect, Lauryn and Big Shot represent the future of Broadway. This performance will showcase one of Ireland’s most promising composer-lyricists, and simply cannot be missed. Expect a powerhouse cast of some of West End’s, Ireland’s, and New York’s greatest talent. We know you will love Lauryn’s catchy, engaging music.
