Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk are among the most celebrated young writers in musical theatre. Their adaptation of Henry & Mudge had an Off-Broadway run at the Lucille Lortel Theatre and is currently touring the country with TheatreworksUSA. Their latest original musical The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown was most recently developed at a workshop at Manhattan Theatre Club directed by Christopher Ashley. They have collaborated on two other musicals: The Woman Upstairs and Wrong Number, both of which were featured in the New York Musical Theatre Festival. They are recipients of a 2006 Jonathan Larson Award and a 2004-2005 Jonathan Larson Fellowship at the Dramatists Guild, and they are members of the BMI Musical Theatre Advanced workshop, ASCAP and the Dramatists Guild.

Their songs are about youth, coming of age, and learning lessons. It’s about laughing at yourself, and figuring things out on your own. It’s about realizing that with the freedom to do anything comes the responsibility to do something.

Kerrigan and Lowdermilk have compiled all their musical theatre and pop songs into one database called PARTY WORTH CRASHING where producers can choose their own set list and create their own individual shows. This Cabaret event is Twenty-Something Theatre’s compilation of those songs and with songs entitled Anonymous Sex, Last Week’s Alcohol and Pretty Girl Blues, it is guaranteed to be a night to remember.

The performance will take place with cabaret-style seating and will have a cash bar with only $4 drinks!! However, we don’t want anyone driving under the influence so be sure to leave your vehicles at home but don’t forget your wallet!

Date: Thursday March 31st, Friday April 1st and Saturday April 2nd, 2011
