The 9:30 PM concert featured Rosser and Sohne as well as Krysta Rodriguez, Lindsay Mendez, Jason Gotay, Tony winner Randy Graff, Sally Wilfert, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Tony Sheldon, Taylor Trensch, Danny Quadrino and Josh Young, among others.
The evening, which marked the composer and lyricist's cabaret debut, was directed by Matthew DiCarlo with musical direction by Rosser. Composer-lyricist Ryan Scott Oliver and Very Intense Productions produced. Videography is by Daniel Schloss.
54 Below described the evening as such: "How many evenings can be spent in the company of a family of evangelical creationists (The Profit of Creation), dancing boys in Afghanistan (The Boy Who Danced On Air), opinionated if slightly confused teenagers (Political Speeches By Young People), and robotic tin soldiers (Third Time’s A Charm)? The work of songwriters Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne is far-ranging, but united by a unique blend of sincerity, sensitivity, thoughtfulness, and humor. Come hear Broadway’s finest perform a set that will make you laugh, cry, order a martini, and then chase it with bourbon."
