Meet the cast of David Davila's 52 SONGS: ABRIDGED! They're young, they're fierce, and they werque!!!
by David Davila (playwright / song-writer)
Tonight is my big show at the Laurie Beechman theatre. It's the culmination of a year of writing a song a week, and I've got THE best singers in NYC giving it a go. If you're not familiar with the people on this cast list then you need to get with it, cause they're the hottest singers on the scene!
One of the sweetest most talented people you will EVER meet, Jaime Cepero is known for playing the evil Ellis on NBC's SMASH. He's nothing like that in real life y'all, which only proves how talented he is. Hear him bring the house down in this video:
You know her from the bootlegs of WICKED and BARE which no one is supposed to know exist but EVERYONE has seen... and of course Sabrina: the Teenage Witch. She serves that Broadway realness every time! She'll be singing a song from Havrilla & Davila's F*CKING BEAUTIFUL: the musical. Ladies and Gentlemen, Jenna Leigh Green:
Meet Daniel Quadrino, he's going to be so famous. He gave the most buzzed about performance in this year's New York Musical Theatre Festival's TROUBLE: A ROCK MUSICAL.
Charles Barksdale's voice has to be heard to be believed. He's got those eight octives like Mariah Carey. It's no wonder he's become a staple on the NYC Concert scene, and why he'll be playing TJ on the Sister Act Tour this year.
You may not have heard of Desi Oakley but you will VERY soon. She's quickly moving up in the Broadway world; jumping from Wicked to Annie this fall. Her voice is glorious!
Jillian Cox is this fierce soprano / comedic character actress that travels around the world singing Broadway/Opera cross-over concerts. Here she is singing a fantastic rendition of Glitter and Be Gay:
I want to post a video of everyone in the cast but then I'd be here all day watching their youtube clips when I have a MILLION things to do before the concert. Trust me, the videos of the show will be fierce and you'll want to watch them over and over. :)
You should totes look up the rest of the cast if you've got time. The cast features Gabrielle Ruiz (In The Heights), Jennifer Foster (Fat Camp), Jared Zirilli (Lysistrata Jones), Lacey Angerosa (Addams Family), Jose Sepulveda (Adan Y Julio), Allison Rerecich, Michelle Caniglia, Keith Hines, Devin Lewis, Stephanie Nash, Kelly Bales, Anika Seidman-Gati, Sean Havrilla, Alexander Sage Oyen, Katie Hotz, and me, David Davila.
Hope to see you at the show!
