Preston Max Allen: New Music, Same Mayhem
September 21, 2021
To no one’s surprise, the guy who brought you We Are The Tigers and Carrie 2: The Rage (An Unauthorized Musical Parody) is back with a brand new evening of murder musical magic! Joined by music director Patrick Sulken, book writer Edward Precht, and an award-worthy cast, Preston is thrilled to debut all-new music from his latest project Amy Adams Wins An Oscar, a harrowing fantasia of love, loss, and the lengths a certain red-head will go to sabotage Isla Fisher’s career. Sonically somewhere between Hello, Dolly! and Heathers, this skewed love letter to Hollywood pulls dozens of familiar faces – from Amy to Meryl to Saoirse to Glenn – into the Academy Awards race of a lifetime, where the stakes are high and no one is safe (except, of course, the audience, thanks to the incredible COVID-19 safety precautions taken by Feinstein’s/54 Below!). See you on Sept. 21st when we finally answer that age-old question: “Who lives, who dies, who wins an Oscar?”
Featuring performances from Lauren Nicole Chapman and more to be announced!
