Feinstein’s/54 Below debut! Join us for an evening of story songs from exciting emerging writers Josh Freilich and Kate Chadwick. You’ll hear work from their collaboration at Barrington Stage (Butterflies, a musical about Kate’s terrifying youth in ballet, directed by Graciela Daniele) and from their musicals developed for the University of California, Irvine’s Satellite Program (By The Breath Of Southern Fire, a comedy about nerds at ComicCon and Excuse Me, a song cycle about how no one ever talks to each other in New York… Why not!?). Josh will be at the piano playing his own songs and Kate will host a cast of Broadway and cabaret’s best (who have promised to act the heck out of this night of new work).
