New Musical Revue About the Journey Through Your 30s
To Play Laurie Beechman Theater
NEW YORK, NY, Jan. 17, 2017 — thirtywhatever, a new musical revue filled with songs about what happens between the time you say goodbye to 29 and hello to 40, will be presented at the Laurie Beechman Theatre from January 29 — February 20, 2017.
Featuring the music and lyrics of award-winning songwriter Patrick Dwyer, thirtywhatever will be performed by James Seol (Broadway’s Naked Girl on the Appian Way, Off-Broadway’s Small Mouth Sounds), Correy West (Broadway’s Nice Work If You Can Get It, South Pacific), Erin Wegner Brooks (Young Frankenstein National Tour), Booth Daniels (Seussical National Tour), Christopher Redding and Kathleen Stuart (Inside Llewyn Davis).
The heartwarming thirtywhatever is a rollercoaster ride through the highs and the lows, the heartbreaks and triumphs that take us from the wide-eyed dreams of our twenties to the confident mature adults we all want to be. “Patrick Dwyer is a gifted songwriter. You will find Mr. Dwyer’s joy infectious, his energy radiant, and his hope for the future awe-inspiring” — Theater Pizzazz
