From NYC with Love is a musical love letter from New York City, where Kurt Phelan has been living and working for the past year, stirring up the scene in such shows as Rent and directing and starring in Mondays at the Pub at the iconic Joes Pub.
May 22 is Kurt’s birthday and his last night in Manhattan before he makes the journey back to Australia to care for his father, which means a mandatory 14-day solitary quarantine. In other words, the perfect night to celebrate a send-off with a cabaret!
“Isolation gave us all time to think,” says Phelan. “I found myself reminiscing and becoming very nostalgic. When it came time to step outside my apartment the city felt somewhat magical. Mostly everything is closed and our industry is gone, but even through all of this NYC smiles. I wanted to share this with you all, celebrate my birthday and say goodbye to my NYC family whilst sending love to my Aussie one.”
From NYC with Love will be performed by Kurt Phelan along-side his husband, Emmy Award-winning composer Lance Horne, live from their house on the Upper West Side from 8pm EST Friday May 22 (Saturday May 23 10am AEST)
