Video: NY Theater Music Festival

In July I performed in a one-night-only concert celebrating the Pultizer and Tony-winning Next to Normal.  I originated the violin role for this magnificent musical and this concert combined Tom Kitt, the composer, on piano with cast and band members from all the past productions of the show. Here's a video from that performance.

The New York Musical Theatre Festival presented Tom Kitt and Friends, a one-night-only concert celebrating the Pultizer and Tony-winning Next to Normal which originated at NYMF as Feeling Electric. On hand were Alice Ripley, Jennifer Damiano and Louis Hobson from the Broadway cast, Amy Spanger, Joe Cassidy, (both from the 2005 Feeling Electric cast), Ben Schrader (the 2002 workshop cast) and more who sang iconic tunes like "Superboy and the Invisible Girl" and "I Miss the Mountains" as well as cut songs like "Blue Skies and Sunshine" and "Growing Up Unstable." The band featured Christian Hebel (violin), Mairi Dorman-Phaneuf (cello), Brian Hamm (bass), Trey Files (drums), Eric B. Davis (guitar) and Kitt himself on piano. 

Christian Hebel at NY Theater Music Festival

I am looking forward to playing violin for Next to Normal during the New York Musical Theater Festival. For one night only, the show will take place at PTC Performance Space (555 W. 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036) on Monday, July 13 at 8:00 pm. 

Broadway's Next To Normal, which won the Pulitzer in 2009, originated in 2005 at NYMF as Feeling Electric which I was a part of. I had the honor of  originating the violin music in both Feeling Electric and Next to Normal.
