Songwriters Ewalt & Walker and Drew Overcash introduce the talented students of New York Film Academy’s musical theater to the legendary 54 Below in NYFA Sings Ewalt, Walker, and Overcash. NYFA’s burgeoning musical theater department is ready to meet the city’s cabaret scene and wow the crowds with the newest crop of undiscovered talent. After working with the students on new projects, Ewalt & Walker and Drew Overcash are excited to invite NYFA’s young stars to join them onstage for a concert of work from some of their newest shows. Expect surprise Broadway special guests and some of the best new voices sure to be Broadway’s future stars.
Ewalt & Walker, writers of the hit show Bromance, return to 54 Below after two smash, sold-out Pajamboree concerts, where they turned the club into a musical theater sleepover party. Their work has also been seen at Joe’s Pub, Playwrights Horizons, Ars Nova, Caroline’s On Broadway, and 92Y. They are also the curating producers of the emerging composer series Behind the Music-al, produced in conjunction with The Dramatists Guild of America. www.ewaltandwalker.com
Drew Overcash is a Midwestern songwriter whose work has been heard around the city at venues like Joe’s Pub, Manhattan Movement and Arts Center, Birdland, 54 Below, and The Pershing Square Signature Center. His musical, BOYS VS. GIRLS, under production contract with Last Call Theatricals, held its NYC premier concert at (le) Poisson Rouge this past spring. He is a creator of the sold-out concert series Twenty-Somethings (in it’s third year at The Highline Ballroom), the St. Jude Benefit Concert series raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the Fresh Pens Contest, which gives new songwriters the opportunity to showcase their music. @djovercash
