Broadway and Off-Broadway's best take o­n the songs of pop sensation Ben Folds in a o­ne-night-only NYMF concert event! Folds' offbeat cast of characters have infiltrated concerts and cabarets by performers from Bette Midler to Michael Arden. His biting lyrics and virtuosic melodies have influenced theatre composers such as Tom Kitt (High Fidelity, Feeling Electric, NYMF 2005) and Groovelily (Striking 12). Now NYMF takes it o­ne step farther with an evening of songs from Ben Folds Five, Whatever And Ever Amen, The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner and Songs for Silverman. A must-see fusion of pop and musical theatre.
