Something Blue

Something New, Something Fun, Something Blue is Something Done!

After a little over five years of off-and-on writing, we now have a first full draft of Something Blue! And we had the honor of hearing it outloud for the first time with some wonderful new friends – director Sash Bischoff and actors Robbie Collier Sublett, Rachel Flynn, and Ryan Everett Wood.

What started as a challenge to write the smallest show we could imagine became a three-person, hushed, complicated, human musical.

We’re already on to rewrites for the next draft, and we’re looking forward to sharing the show sometime very soon!

Videos from the Feinstein’s/54 Below concert are now online! Watch the whole 17 song playlist above (starting with the finale, of course.)

Thanks to all who came up/down/in/over to that midtown basement to share the evening with us. Thanks to Jennifer Ashley Tepper and the whole 54 Below staff for inviting us to kick off this wonderful (and ongoing!) series. And thanks, especially, to our 26 singers, actors, and musicians for bringing so much of our work to life!

54 Singers at 54 Below!

Just kidding, it’s only 18 (and a 6-piece band.) But that’s a whole lot of our favorite singers joining us for our Feinstein’s/54 Below concert on Sunday, July 30 at 7pm!

Delaney Amatrudo, Ally Bonino, Sojourner Brown, Max Chernin, Molly Hager, Sam Heldt, Emily Jenda, Marina Kondo, Kelsey Lake, Amy Linden, Ellen Condon Macy, Evan Maltby, Allison Posner, Allie Sandler, Libby Servais, Johnny Shea, Phoebe Strole, and Allie Trimm are going to bring you tunes from REB+VoDKa+MESomething Blue, and The Magnificent Seven!

We’re so excited to have so many faces we love (both new and familiar) on stage with us! Get your tickets now to celebrate their wonderfulness with us! (And use the code JMGL5 to get $5 off the cover for the main dining room…)
