Alysha Umphress returns to 54 Below with a unique new show called 15 Stories. Conceived by Jack Viertel and music directed by Sonny Paladino, Umphress (On the Town, American Idiot, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, many television and symphony appearances including with the London Symphony and at La Scala) will take the audience on 15 different rides, performing songs that tell a narrative story from beginning to end – theater songs, country songs, pop songs, gospel and more.
Leaving behind – for the moment – the “I love you,” “I wish I was in love,” “Why don’t you love me” genres, each number is a unique journey for a unique character in a unique situation. The songs range from Bock and Harnick and Kurt Weill to Bobby Gentry, Lyle Lovett, Randy Newman, Leiber and Stoller, and then swing back – inevitably – to Stephen Sondheim. This special engagement is an opportunity to see Alysha take on 15 different personae in one evening, featuring one of the most glorious voices there is to be heard anywhere.
On the Town's Alysha Umphress: 15 Stories is playing at 54 Below. The theatre is located in New York, NY, United States, 10019.
