Stories of Me and You: The Songs of Jacob Ryan Smith is an anthology concert featuring current and up-and-coming Broadway talent exploring the work of musical theater writer Jacob Ryan Smith. Stories of Me and You seeks to discuss the world at large through music, tackling familiar subjects of love and isolation, as well as untouched topics of addiction, political sacrifice, and the bystander effect.
Featuring: Leanne Antonio, Emma Ashford, Michael Bingham, Megan Griggs, Emily Harkins, Cheech Manohar (Mean Girls), Daniel Neale, Mia Pak (In the Green), Nathanael Phillips, Conor Ryan (Desperate Measures), Christina Saffran (A Chorus Line), Joe Serafini, Josh Strobl (Dear Evan Hansen), and Nina White.
Stories of Me and You is directed by Yoni Weiss, music directed by Spencer Channell, assistant directed by Peter Scattini, and features orchestrations by Cole Abod.
A boy shows up in your bedroom, offers you some Fairy Dust, and takes you on a journey you will never forget. Peter, his drug-addled fairy “friend” Tweaker Bell, Pan’s Lost Boys, and the coked-out Darling children find themselves face-to-face with Captain Hook, so-named for an infamously missing appendage. I Do Believe in Fairies is a violent, ridiculous adventure that upends the mythical tale of the boy who never grew up.
An encore performance of I Do Believe in Fairies by Mark Thomas Johnson with Yoni Weiss and The Killer Darlings will be performed at Dixon Place on July 19 at 10pm.
Performed by The Killer Darlings: Ties Jansen, Chance Riley Kester, Sam Korobkin, Taylor Larson, Tom Pastor, Tamar Rubin, Elizabeth Stater. Comprised of rebellious souls from the depths of lower Manhattan, The Killer Darlings work to contemporize and destroy the ideals of ridiculous theatre, queer theatre, musical theatre, devised theatre, paradoxical theatre, morally-depraved theatre, and theater theatre.
