Here's how 54 Below bills the evening: "Fresh off last summer's extended run of their musical Unlock'd at the Duke Theater and just back from a production of their musical Island Song in Bloomington, Indiana, Carner & Gregor (one of Playbill.com's 12 Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know) make their 54 Below concert debut. Known for their eclectic mix of thrilling rock beats, lush romantic melodies, envelope-pushing comedy and unique ability to capture every-day experience, Carner & Gregor's work has become a cabaret staple around the world. This exciting concert features some of their most beloved MAC-nominated songs like 'Make It Here' and 'Sing, But Dont Tell,' as well as brand new, never-before-heard material from upcoming projects, all sung by some of Broadway's biggest stars."
Carner and Gregor are the authors of Unlock'd, seen at Off-Broadway's Prospect Theater Company last summer; Island Song; and the short children's piece Love, Splat. Read more about the songwriters in Playbill.com's Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know.
