Meet Michael J. Scott. Meet Asmeret Ghebremichael. Straight from THE BOOK OF MORMON, they are stepping out to tell their story. Fierce.
Meet Michael James Scott. Meet Asmeret Ghebremichael. Two friends living parallel lives and following their dreams on The Great White Way. One: a sassy broad strutting her gams down 9th Avenue with a personality as delicious as sweet tea. The other: Asmeret.
Straight from the Tony winning cast of THE BOOK OF MORMON, these two Broadway Brownies are stepping out and stepping up into the spotlight to show you what they are all about. With a combined 13 Broadway shows to their names they are excited and honored to be doing their own thang. Through their favorite songs, you will learn what makes them tick and tock, what makes them groove and rock and how they continue to dream the dream, honey boo boo child. Come along on their journey and see who they are when the curtain falls - and when it goes up again. The night will include the duo's favorite pop, R&B, and soul songs... and maybe some classic Broadway favorites. Boasting musical direction by the fabulous Cian McCarthy and direction by Michael Potts, both also from THE BOOK OF MORMON family, as well as a few sick back-up vocalists (TBA so soon!) ... It’s sure to be a fantastic and fingerlickin’ night. Watch out Colonel Sanders.
This one-night-only event is only possible due to your generosity. New York is expensive! You will help us cover the space rental at the beautiful Canal Room, our incredible band and our star studded directorial & music team. And where would we be without those creative people to make us look so fierce... Special thanks to Neal Hunter Hyde and Joseph Lucius, our hair and make-up artist Matty Wilson, and our super talented photographer Matt Murphy... so that we can show YOU what an incredible night this turns out to be. So, come join everyone's favorite chocolate Donny and Marie and see them bring it for an evening that promises to be fun, fabulous and fingerlickin’ fierce!
