New Musical in Concert: For Show by Carrie Caffrey and Earl Marrows, feat. Fernell Hogan & More!
February 20, 2022
Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for a concert presentation of For Show, a propulsive original pop/rock musical exposing the harsh realities in the glittery world of high school show choir, where students grapple with a system designed to silence young women.
When choir geek Cassie Russell (Mia Anne Pelosi) transfers to the prestigious Brentwood Prep for her senior year, she is single-minded in her pursuit of joining their famed champion show choir. But as she fights her way into their exclusive social circles, led by cold choir captain Brianna Morgan, Cassie learns that the criteria for earning a spot at Nationals is far more complicated than just talent. The show choir’s charming director is sexually assaulting Brianna, but when the school starts asking Cassie questions about what she’s seen, the price of her entrance to “Show” becomes her silence. For Show examines the complexities of harassment, complicity, and the price of success. In the ultra-competitive world of Brentwood Prep, what would you do for power, for influence, and For Show?
