New Writers at 54! Janine McGuire & Arri Lawton Simon’s Borders
August 3, 2021
Janine McGuire & Arri Lawton Simon make their Feinstein’s/54 Below concert debut with selections from Borders, their explosive new musical about a gay Israeli solider and a closeted Palestinian man who fall in love during the Second Intifada in the early 2000s. This one-night only concert event will feature audience favorites and never-before-heard songs from Borders’ sweeping, pop-influenced, Middle Eastern-inflected score, performed by an all-star cast and six-piece band. Based upon the 2006 film The Bubble by Eytan Fox and Gal Uchovsky, directed by Eytan Fox, Borders pulses with energy, urgency, and hope for a more peaceful world.
Produced by Jen Sandler
