The Zack Zadek Songbook
November 14, 2018
Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for an evening of songs by one of the most exciting new voices in musical theatre, Zack Zadek. Zack has been named by Playbill as “A Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriter You Should Know” and is a MacDowell Fellow, recipient of Weston’s New Musical Award, a Kleban Prize Finalist and Jonathan Larson Grant Finalist, currently in residence with The Orchard Project Greenhouse and signed to Warner/Chappell music.
The concert will feature highlights from Zack’s musicals including Deathless (2017 world premiere at Goodspeed), Store Brand (currently in development with The Civilians), The Crazy Ones (developed at the 5th Avenue Theatre), Love, Rosie (based on the 2014 film), and first time sneak peeks of other commissions in development.
Featuring an all-star cast of Broadway performers, and a killer band led by Zack, the evening marks Zack’s return to the concert stage with loads of never-before-heard material. From the indie rock suburban vibes of Store Brand, to the deeply moving world of immortality painted in Deathless, experience some of the best new musical theatre, by one of its most daring new writers.
