Award winning musical theatre composer Drew Gasparini is flying in from NYC for two London concerts following his sold out debut earlier this year.
Gasparini is an accomplished composer and singer/songwriter whose music was featured on the second season of NBC’s Smash. He was named as one of Playbill’s Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know in 2012.
Gasparini's other musicals include Above My Pay Grade, Inappropriate Stories Told at a Bar and Crazy, Just Like Me. His new show, Make Me Bad, is currently in development and has received a great reception throughout recent industry readings. Gasparini's work has been performed to sold out houses in New York and his album I Could Use A Drink features some of Broadway’s biggest voices, including Jeremy Jordan, Caissie Levy and Lindsay Mendez.
The Songs Of Drew Gasparini will be staged at the London Theatre Workshop on 9th November 2014. Gasparini will host the concert which will showcase his writing. Guests include Emma Hatton (who takes over as Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked next year), Liam Doyle (Altar Boyz/Mamma Mia) and Drew Weston (who featured on Gasaprini’s I Could Use A Drink album).
In collaboration with London based company TwentySomething Productions, Gasparini has created a transatlantic concert series known as ThePlatformNYC/LDN. Each concert pomotes dynamic and contemporary New York-based composers and a variety of international performers.
The Platform Ldn will also be staged at the London Theatre Workshop. The show takes place on 10th November 2014, showcasing the works of Rob Rokicki, Jeremy Schonberg and writing team Carner & Gregor. Gasparini will host the event.
