The Songs of Leo Hurley & Charles Osborne
February 8, 2018
Salty Starness Productions is proud to bring its celebration of new works by composer Leo Hurley and lyricist Charles Osborne to Feinstein’s/54 Below! Directed and produced by Julie Saltman, The Songs of Leo Hurley & Charles Osborne promises to be a night of musical surprises. From fantastical family fare to Broadway-bound sensational flair, the concert will feature performances from Broadway’s Samantha Massell (Fiddler on the Roof, La Boheme), Isaac Powell (Once On This Island), Tori Feinstein (Matilda), and many more! This special concert is not to be missed!
Hurley & Osborne are a new songwriting team bridging the worlds of opera and musical theatre, whose work combines myth and history to combat contemporary issues. Featured in the Boston Globe, the Associated Press, the UK’s Daily Mail, and more, Hurley & Osborne have been listed as a Top Ten to Watch (Playbill, TimeOut NY, and more), and made international headlines when they used their work to bring down anti-LGBT legislation in the NC Legislature. Concert will features selections from The Body Politic, about trans/Muslim discrimination in NC (NYMF 2017, Boston Center for the Arts, NC State Legislature); Paris Through the Window, a fable about artists in the City of Light during WWI (Abingdon Theatre, York Theatre); Taking Wing, an anti-bullying Disney-esque fantasy musical (NYNW Theatre Festival 2017); as well as world premieres from two forthcoming shows, We Are Myth, exploring modern teen issues through Greek myths; and Brooklyn Bridge, the true story of the woman who built it, amid the turmoil of post-Civil War America.
