American Songbook 2016 Opening Night with Ryan Scott Oliver

Composer-lyricist Ryan Scott Oliver has been called “the future of Broadway…a major new voice in musical theater” (Entertainment Weekly) and “the center of Broadway’s millennial talents” (Playbill). His distinct work combines a powerful pop influence, rich harmony, and stories steeped in myth. His original musicals include Darling, a Jazz Age retelling of Peter Pan, and the “playful, silly-smart” riff on Orpheus, Jasper in Deadland (New York Times). His genre-bending multimedia 35MM: A Musical Exhibition is currently performed worldwide. Oliver is currently crafting a trilogy of new American musicals that includes We Foxes, a Southern Gothic thriller, and Rope (for Grove Entertainment), which follows the extraordinary journey and unlikely bond of two boys during the Civil War.

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
