Starring Zack Anthony Curran (Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady), Keane Fletcher (We Will Rock You, The Ten Tenors) and Andrew Kroenert (Jesus Christ Superstar, Dream Lover) the unique experience of the 27 Club includes poetry, verbatim interviews, candid journal entries and show-stopping numbers such as Joplin’s Mercedes Benz, Winehouse’s Valerie and Cobain’s Smells Like Teen Spirit.

The performers are regulars on the professional music theatre scene and this is their first foray into independent regional touring.

Designed as a live concert, the 27 Club traverses both the lives and the music of these great artists, shifting back and forth from unplugged coffee house intimacy to booming arena-sized fireworks.
