After a sold out run at The Pitch, we're going back to The Finger Lakes in 2018! But, this time, with a full production! We're so excited to officially share our Anne with the world! Click here for tickets!
For the past year, Matte has been collaborating with the members of Wild Goose Chase, a UK-based theatre company, on the creation of an original play inspired by the writing style of William Shakespeare. Utilizing a combination of verse and prose, the play is a bloody romp around the Bard of Avon's famous sonnets. Special guest appearances by William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, and a weyward sister... or three. More info to follow soon!
Here's a quick peek from our day recording ensemble vocals! These folks killed it! Can't wait to mix it all down! More to follow!
Here's a little info from the 54 Below site:
"Matte O’Brien and Matt Vinson are New York based music theatre writers whose eclectic style melds an emotional fusion of folk, rock, soul, and Broadway pop. For their 54 Below concert debut, Matt and Matte bring original songs from two upcoming collaborations: the pop-rock opera CAKE, and an epic-folk adaptation of L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables. The evening also features new arrangements of songs from their musical Peter & I, which previously enjoyed a sold-out Off-Broadway run at the American Theatre of Actors as part of the Araca Project. Top Broadway vocalists accompanied by a power ensemble and live folk-rock band make this a sonic experience not to be missed." For tickets, click here.
