A Multimedia musical by Ryan Scott Oliver
Inspired by photographs by Matthew Murphy
Directed by Keith Rabin Jr
Music Directed by Jason Tyler Vaughn with Accompaniment by Heather Holt Hall
Representing a collision of artistic disciplines as disparate as musical theater, photography, and pop/rock music, "35MM" pushes the limits of self-expression to create an art form utterly its own. A collection of "snapshot stories" are woven together as each of Oliver's original songs is performed-with gusto and musical virtuosity-while the audience is immersed in stunning projections of the photography that inspired it. "35MM" brings the connection between pleasures visual and aural into razor-sharp focus, creating a singular, multi-sensory emotional journey.
The cast includes Lindsey Falduto, Olivia James, Shahara Ray, Alejandro Roldan Evan Sauvage and Zach Stailey.
Ryan Scott Oliver is a musical theatre composer and lyricist. He is a 2011 Lucille Lortel Award Nominee and the recipient of both the 2009 Jonathan Larson Grant and the 2008 Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater.
