Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for another thrilling evening featuring the songs of Oceanborn. Oceanborn was created through the collaboration of two teenage women, a composer and playwright, writing of the mythic female heroes of ages past. The youngest duo on the New York Theatre scene, Cameron & Smith’s work has been lauded as “revelatory” and “the future of Broadway.”
Oceanborn follows two young women as they face the pressures and expectations of future leadership in a climate of violence and uncertainty. Acerbic wit balanced with heartrending poignancy, this musical tackles the cyclic nature of violence and xenophobia head on. Mhairi Cameron, composer and head lyricist, has won national awards in poetry and has worked professionally in television and film. Morgan Smith, bookwriter and co-lyricist, is a novelist and playwright whose writings have been published in the US and internationally, and recognized at the Yale and Kenyon Writer’s Conferences. Come and hear the story of an unlikely friendship that sparked a movement, performed by the original Off-Broadway cast with a guest appearance with one of the writers, Morgan Smith.
