In September, we proudly presented A Little New Music 6.
Having established itself as the preeminent night of new musical theatre in Los Angeles, A LITTLE NEW MUSIC returned to Rockwell: Table & Stage in Los Feliz with a highly inventive program featuring Broadway and local talent. The hilariously irreverent Jordan Kai Burnett (THE MAX FACTOR FACTOR) hosted for a fourth time, and we were pleased to welcome as our guest musical director the two-time Ovation Award-winning composer Gregory Nabours.
The evening showcased songs by award-winning writers Carner & Gregor (ISLAND SONG), Gomez & Lyles (HATCHED), Gregory Nabours (THE TROUBLE WITH WORDS), Buck & Gwinn, Kristy Hanson (PIECE OF YOUR HEART), Sankoff & Hein (MY MOTHER’S LESBIAN JEWISH WICCAN WEDDING), Bogart & Rockwell (THE MUSICAL OF MUSICALS, THE MUSICAL!), Levine & Castle, Anna K. Jacobs (POP!) & Michael R. Jackson, Kevin Ray, Rachel Peters, Meinwald & Leary, Moran & Pappas, and Cindy Shapiro.
With performances by Broadway’s Nicole Parker (WICKED, “MADtv”), Kevin Odekirk (LES MIS), Leslie Stevens (LA CAGE, VICTOR/VICTORIA), Rhett George (MEMPHIS, FAME), and Lisa Musser (JANE EYRE, LES MIS), plus Patricia Whiteman, Constance Jewell Lopez, Kevin Patrick Doherty, Shannon Martinous, David Crane, Nora Hunter, Jase Lindgren, Sammi Lappin and more. Special guest appearances by folk/pop singer-songwriter Kristy Hanson on guitar, and PSYCHE: A MODERN ROCK OPERA.
Guest musical director Gregory Nabours was joined by Eric McCann on upright bass and Brian Cannady on drums.
