This Ain't No Disco
Part rock opera, part impressionist tone poem set in the nightclubs and art world of 1979 New York City, This Ain’t No Disco interweaves the stories of strivers, dreamers and drifters searching for their place at Studio 54 and Mudd Club, the art scene and downtown lofts. In their uptown/downtown quest for revelry and kinship, this disparate group, in different stages of becoming and falling apart, find themselves and each other in a city on the verge of a massive cultural shift.
a musical by Stephen Trask and Peter Yanowitz
I was cast in the lead role of Chad for a workshop of This Ain’t no Disco at Atlantic Theatre. Working with Stephen Trask and Peter Yanowitz was a definite highlight of my career so far. They are incredibly bold and intuitive composers and it was a delight to perform their music. Bonus: getting to rock out next to Michael C. Hall, Will Connolly, Samantha Marie Ware and the rest of the star-studded cast.
