BOLIN SCHMOLIN: The Songs of Eli Bolin @ 54 BELOW
The songs of Eli Bolin – like the man himself – are sincere and direct, while possessing a ramshackle, goofy quality. His tuneful (always), heart-sick (occasionally), potty-mouth (when he just can’t help it) jams make for a perfect party playlist. On May 1st, take a star-studded journey through Eli Bolin’s songbook, including fan favorites from last fall’s hit Off-Broadway musical Found and NYMF’s ‘Most Promising New Musical’ Volleygirls, as well as works in progress and new material that’s never been performed live. Don’t be fooled by those sweet cheeks and floppy curls: this man and his work are to be taken seriously. Veeeerrrrrrryyyyy seriously. #BolinSchmolin
The Songs of Eli Bolin will be performed by Jennifer Damiano (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, Next to Normal), Kevin Del Aguila (Peter and the Starcatcher), Stephanie D’Abruzzo (Avenue Q), Drew Gasparini (composer of Make Me Bad), Jed Resnick (Avenue Q), Jeremy Morse (Bloodsong of Love), Allison Posner (Volleygirls), Larry Hamilton (Captain Louie), and Nicholas Barnes (Skippyjon Jones), plus more to be announced. The evening is directed by Laura Pietropinto, produced by Erica Rotstein, and will feature music direction by Mike Pettry.
