New Musical! Vincent by Matt DeMaria
An emo/progressive rock musical inspired by Vincent Van Gogh

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Matt DeMaria's Vincent on Friday, August 9 at 9:30pm.
Join us at 54 Below for a one night only concert of Vincent, a brand new emo/progressive rock musical that is not a biography of Vincent Van Gogh, but more an Impressionist painting of his aura. Taking place in modern day Brooklyn, we follow Vincent as she navigates the life of being an artist in search of that ultimate goal… to be seen and heard. Vincent holds a mirror up to the modern struggles of the artist. After an award winning run at the New York Theatre Festival, Vincent is ready to blow the roof off of 54 Below.

Featuring Delilah Jane Dunn, Erica Enriquez (Choo Choo), Charlotte Odusanya (Rent, Audrey: A New Musical), Kate Shoulders and Devyn White (The Imbible, 420: The Musical), with more stars to be announced! Matt DeMaria music directs and leads a band featuring Tiffany Jordan Anderson, Conner Duke, Eitan Prouser, and Justin Scheidling. Directed by by Alyssa Kakis. Produced by Daniel J. Ferrante and Dead Star Theatre Co (Matt DeMaria, Kenny Doyle, and Alyssa Kakis).
