Join us at 54 Below for the world premiere concert presentation of the new musical Platinum Dreams. Created by award-winning composer Gary William Friedman (The Me Nobody Knows, Taking My Turn, TV’s “The Electric Company”) and acclaimed and award-winning recording artist/writer Stevie Holland (Love, Linda: The Life of Mrs. Cole Porter), Platinum Dreams was conceived utilizing the scores from Friedman’s and Will Holt’s Broadway/Off-Broadway shows Platinum and Sunset (plus new songs by Holland and Friedman).

Set in 1977 with a score encompassing ’70s rock, ’40s big-band, and a contemporary theatre sound, the show tells the story of LILA HALLIDAY, a musical movie star of the 1940’s who’s hoping to make a comeback by recording her first solo album, DAN HARDIN, a hot rock ‘n’ roll star looking to keep his relevance on the charts, and JAMIE STILES, a record producer/studio owner who’s also DAN’s former writing partner and former lover. Destiny brings together three disparate, talented people with their own agendas and how they ultimately grow to accept each other and go on with their lives and fulfill their dreams.

The early shows Platinum and Sunset are rich with theater lore and include legendary names like Tommy Tune, Joe Layton, Alexis Smith, Tammy Grimes, and Bruce Vilanch.

The full musical score will be performed with some contextual dialogue (book-held), in what is sure to be an unforgettably entertaining and historic evening!
