Katie Thompson (Giant, Big Fish) brings her talented Broadway friends to Feinstein’s/54 Below to debut original songs from this songwriter’s many projects in the making. The concert will also feature selections from her new musical one act “Sleeping in the Ground” which recently had its first developmental lab directed by Andy Sandberg, and choreographed by Shea Sullivan.
Katie does not hold the rights to create a musical based on the 1989 classic film Troop Beverly Hills, but if she did, she might have written a host of new songs about Shelley Long in the woods to debut Sunday night. Anything’s possible. Featuring Tony nominee Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!, Big Fish), Bonnie Milligan (Kinky Boots, Gigantic, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater), LaQuet Sharnell Pringle (Lysistrata Jones, Memphis), Kate Rockwell (Bring It On the Musical, Legally Blonde, Rock of Ages), Britton Smith (Bella: An American Tall Tale, Shuffle Along…), Emma Stratton (Prince of Broadway, Bullets Over Broadway), and Kirsten Wyatt (Annie, Elf), with Direction and Music Direction by Benjamin Rauhala.
