Producing a concert at Feinstein's/54 Below was a dream of mine, and being able to produce work by up and coming composers featuring rising stars is truly a dream come true.
THE SONGS OF MATTHEW MCCOLLUM: SONGS FOR THE DEAD - October 23, 2017
Composer/lyricist and performer Matthew McCollum makes his Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with an evening of ghost stories, both whispered and screamed. An evening in three parts (Songs For The Dead, Songs From The Dead, and The Little Deaths), you’ll travel from the forgotten backwoods of Appalachia, to the glamour of 1940s Hollywood, to a Route 66 jamboree, to that undiscovered country itself, from whose bourn you’ll get to return. Matthew won’t promise a happy ending, but he guarantees an unparalleled group of performers, a total absence of jump scares, and a new collection of soulful, haunting melodies.

THE LAST SONG OF EDDIE SCOURGE - NOVEMBER 30, 2016
Eddie Scourge is a real bastard. He hasn’t had a hit since his best friend and songwriting partner Jeff Morley O.D.ed 15 years ago. Notorious for his bad attitude and the horrible way he treats everyone around him, Eddie only emerges from his self-imposed exile once a year to put on a corporate-sponsored televised Christmas special. This year, he’s faced with an ultimatum: update his dusty show with a new hit song, or be cancelled. In this new musical by Eli Bolin (Found) and Mike Pettry (The Pirate Princess), a late night of songwriting brings out all the ghosts of Eddie’s rock ‘n’ roll past, present, and future.
WE HAVE APPLES - SEPTEMBER 12, 2016
Recently featured on CBS National News and in The Washington Post, We Have Apples by Rachel Griffin is the buzz-worthy new musical you won’t want to miss! The show follows Jane (Hannah Elless, Bright Star) a quirky nineteen-year-old, who is determined to overcome her depression and become a successful writer. Paralyzed by the intensity of Depression (Emily Nash) Jane’s illness personified, Jane is forced to check into a psychiatric facility. In the hospital, Jane meets a band of fabulous fellow patients who join together to expose their inadequate healthcare and fight the stigma associated with mental illness. Led by Jane and fellow writer & patient, Jack (Kyle Scatliffe, The Color Purple) the patients start a mental health movement and turn things upside down both inside and out of the ward.
