Nick Cearley in …And Then I Wrote A Song About It
May 13, 2016
Book by Eric H. Weinberger
Music by Daniel S. Acquisto
Lyrics by Sammy Buck
Directed by Igor Goldin
The award-winning one-man musical comes to Feinstein’s/54 Below for one night only!
Nick Cearley (The Skivvies, Pageant, All Shook Up, Buyer & Cellar) returns to New York to recreate his acclaimed performance as Randall Klausner, a perspiring actor-singer-songwriter-dancer-secretary searching for love and fame in the late ’70s/early ’80s, as well as the colorful characters he meets along the way.
Set to the rhythm of the disco era and beyond, this earnest yet uproarious musical finds Randall in the moments before he goes on Tom Snyder’s Tomorrow Show. His life rushes before him like a groovy flashback, from toiling in his father’s sausage business to dating someone in “soda espionage.” Randall transforms all of his professional and personal misadventures into memorable and quirky songs as he ventures on his rocky road to self-acceptance and an audition for A Chorus Line.
With direction and book by Drama Desk nominees Igor Goldin (Yank!, With Glee) and Eric H. Weinberger (Wanda’s World), and songs by the team that brought the ’80s to Feinstein’s/54 Below in Like You Like It (Daniel S. Acquisto & Sammy Buck), …And Then I Wrote A Song About It is a universally heartfelt and hilarious look at finding success where you least expect it.
