Asher Muldoon: Trunk Songs, feat. Nicholas Barasch & more!
July 30, 2023
“Mr. Muldoon has clearly been an astute student of musical theater, and while his score carries echoes of masters like Stephen Sondheim, it never dissolves into the derivative. That Mr. Muldoon has created a buoyantly engaging musical from seemingly intractable material would be impressive at any age, but coming from someone who’s just 23 it seems almost miraculous.” Charles Isherwood, The Wall Street Journal
Composer/performer and Dear Evan Hansen alum Asher Muldoon makes his 54 Below solo debut with Trunk Songs! Fresh off this summer’s world premiere off-Broadway production of his musical The Butcher Boy, Muldoon shares his as yet unheard catalogue of songs which have not (or haven’t yet) made their way to the stage. These songs run the gamut from standalone pop tunes to musical theater ballads, each imbued with Muldoon’s trademark wit. With a couple special surprise guests, this will be an evening of laughs and music you won’t want to miss.
