The Music & Lyrics of Ricky Alan Saunders
November 17, 2016
Joined by his talented friends, Ricky Alan Saunders returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with a night of his original music and lyrics. This evening of sophisticated up-tempos and chord driven ballads will journey through the ins and outs of self-discovery, matters of the heart and the hero within. Heralded by The Town Hall Theatre as one of “Broadway’s Rising Stars”, Ricky has previously been seen at Feinstein’s/54 Below in ‘54 Sings Children of Eden’, ‘54 Sings Chess’ and his solo show, ‘In A World of His Own’. He has recently penned the music and lyrics to a contemporary semi-autobiographical musical adaption of the original Carlo Collodi fairytale, Pinocchio, entitled Wooden. He is also developing a new show entitled Jack & Jackie inspired by the Kennedy romance and plans to release an album of his original work in 2017.
