re:Draft Creative, in association with The Green Room 42, has announced that WRAPPED, a narrative cabaret featuring eclectic original versions of Spotify playlists from its diverse talent, will perform June 4 at 9:30pm on The Green Room 42. The show will feature Broadway’s Erika Henningsen (Mean Girls), as well as a host of diverse emerging talents on and off Broadway. Tickets are available (here) for both the in-person performance and a digital live stream that comes with a free video download.
The show’s synopsis reads as follows:
Did you post your “Spotify Wrapped” on social media for the world to see? You are not the only one…
Join your host, an eccentric showman with mysterious motives, for a musical autopsy of the past half year, presented through the lens of Spotify playlists. Featuring genre-spanning performances from a diverse group of emerging artists, “Wrapped” explores the process of coping with life and creating meaning through art.
In addition to a performance by Henningsen, the show will feature a mix of familiar favorites and original pieces from talent including Jessica Orelus (Insta: @agirlnamedjess_), Sydney Sider (@sydevelyn), Xavier Pacheco (@X_act), Asia DeShields (@asiadior_ ), Carly Wheeler (@carlayywheeler), Folasade Ogunjimi (@soluproductions) and Alex Grayson (@alexjgsings) as “The MC”.
WRAPPED is conceived and written by Patrick Daly and directed by Jacob Wahba. The pair’s previous work includes various stage and film productions, including Charlie (Who Paints Art), most recently seen at Holmdel Theater Company. The show is produced by Max Johnson and Kyle Moore, and features Itai Rembaum as associate director, Katherine McGuire as line producer, Evan Schultz as associate producer, and Matthew Solnick as consulting producer.
The night’s band, led by the show’s musical director and arranger, Ashley Hiester (keys), is made up of Christian McGee (drums), Brad Kang (guitar), Rafael Encisco (bass).
