AUSTIN ARTS PROJECT PRESENTS
A BROADWAY MUSICAL REVUE
Thursday, June 3 at 8:00 p.m. | Ground Floor Theatre
Austin Artists Project (AAP) in collaboration with Ground Floor Theatre (GFT) present Sing Out!: A Broadway Musical Revue on June 3, 2021. This outdoor concert will bring the talents of six Tony and Grammy Award winners and nominees together in Austin for an evening of Broadway’s most inspiring and life-affirming works.
Created out of a conversation at the 2019 Tony Awards between Beth Malone who originated the role of Alison Bechdel in the musical Fun Home on Broadway and Austin’s own Mela Dailey about representation on stage through musical theatre, concerts, and pride, AAP leapt into motion to design an evening of personal stories and performances reflecting experiences in the LGBTQIA+ community.
“Sing Out! is a 90-minute Broadway musical revue with a twist that Austin will be able to experience and preview before it heads to New York City next summer at Jazz at Lincoln Center,” explains Dailey. “It’s important to hear personal stories and powerful performances by award-winning artists of the LGBTQIA+ community. And well, I think we deserve some fun after this past year of quarantine. We’ll be celebrating our favorite songs from Broadway to pop, safe on an outdoor stage in partnership with Ground Floor Theatre.”
Sing Out! showcases classic Broadway tunes from Rodgers and Hammerstein and Sondheim to newer works from The Color Purple and Hadestown with award-winning performers reimagining these Broadway blockbuster hits and bringing fresh interpretations of proven classics.
Written and Directed by Kevin Little with Musical Direction from the piano by Shawn Kirchner. Youth Choir Director: Courtney Aguilar and Adult Choir Director: Kendra Lipman.
Sing Out! stars Beth Malone, Mela Dailey, Matt Alber, Kenny Williams, Carr Hornbuckle, and Jada Cato with special guests. Emcee: Rocky Lane. Musicians: Jimmy Blazer (bass guitar) and Masumi Jones (drums).
This outdoor socially distanced event will take place at the Ground Floor Theatre located at 979 Springdale Rd on June 3, 2021 at 8:00 PM, rain or shine.
Streaming options for the Austin performance will be available later in 2021.
