Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for a raucous evening of original tunes about three working women in the music industry! Session Girls The Musical gives us the inside scoop on classical cellist Mariana, bawdy backup vocalist Cocoa, and music-producer-in-training Joli Nye, and their trials and tribulations as they navigate the music world, their love lives, and the untenable travail of a big studio merger.
This musical is brimming with original witty, charming, and memorable tunes like “Painfully Self-Aware,” “Miss Manners Got It Wrong,” “You’re Never A Shoe-In,” “If You Wanna Make Dough On A Show,” “I’m A Producer (And You’re Not),” “I Dreamt Of You,” “We Should All Just Be Excellent,” “Johnny Doesn’t Live Here Any More,” the award-winning “Nothing To Brag About,” and more—the night will be a foot-stomping, booth-romping blast! Session Girls The Musical is created by award-winning writer, composer, and lyricist Mia Moravis, a Van Dean/Stephanie Rosenberg producing partner of Broadway’s Anastasia the musical.

What better way to celebrate the 2018 Winter Olympics than with songs from from the rock opera Tonya and Nancy? Based on the Tonya Harding/ Nancy Kerrigan Olympic skating scandal, Elizabeth Searle’s and Michael Teoli’s rock opera has drawn national and international media coverage, playing in Boston, Chicago and LA as well as enjoying a sold-out run at NYMF. Tony-nominated Broadway star Lauren Worsham (A Genleman’s Guide To Love and Murder) headlines as Nancy, alongside Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages, Grease) as Tonya. Onstage, Tonya’s and Nancy’s ‘Mom’ embodied by Nancy Opel (Urinetown) will MC- and occasionally referee— as Tonya, Nancy and knee-attack conspirator ‘Gillooly,’ portrayed by Tony LePage (Rock of Ages), belt out songs including Tonya’s “Watch Your Back” and Nancy’s aria, “Why Me?” Critics on both coasts have hailed this show as “brilliant.” Let the games begin.
The chorus of the Tonya & Nancy concert will includes four acclaimed alums of the NYMF production: Tatiana Lofton (Broadway at Birdland Concert Series, 2017), Heidi Friese (Matilda; Flashdance national tour), and Ryan MacConnell (From Here to Eternity at MA premiere, 2017). The show also welcomes star bass singer and actor Jason Pintar (The Happiest Millionaire; Joe’s Pub; 2017).
