COMING SOON: YOU’RE GONNA HATE THIS
FEINSTEIN’S/54 BELOW, Broadway’s Supper Club, presents You’re Gonna Hate This. An all-star reboot of the song-cycle musical originally performed at Joe’s Pub by Lindsay Mendez and composer/lyricist Michael Holland (Hurricane, Gashole!). You’re Gonna Hate This celebrates America’s favorite pastime over the course of 14 dynamic songs. Darkly humorous tales of murder, corruption and mayhem dovetail with a healthy dose of redemption. Crossing, blurring and deliberately smearing the lines of pop, rock, jazz, gospel, and musical theatre, You’re Gonna Hate Thisexplores all the stuff we love to hate – and does so with a 4-piece band and pretty much every note the human voice is capable of singing.
Music & Lyrics by Michael Holland; Direction by Dave Solomon; Musical Staging by Mark Myars; and an all-star cast including Lindsay Mendez, Michael Holland, Ephie Aardema, Lilli Cooper, Jon Viktor Corpuz, Kristin Dausch, Janine DiVita, Justin Guarini, Blaine Krauss, Lorinda Lisitza, Rob Maitner, Lesli Margherita, Taylor Montgomery, Kelli Rabke, Andrew Samonsky, Keala Settle, Justin Talkington, Stephen Todd, Jenna Ushkowitz, Nicholas Ward, and Jared Weiss.
