Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles, Marc delaCruz, Stephanie Hsu, and more Broadway alums have joined the lineup for Unremarkable! March 7. The digital variety show, created by queer Asian-American musical theatre writing team Melissa Li and Kit Yan, begins at 8 PM ET.
In Unremarkable!, Li and Yan walk audiences through an evening of tour stories, hit songs from their musicals, and even a cooking class. “We're really excited to be reuniting with brilliant director Jesca Prudencio to bring you this completely forgettable, entirely ‘unremarkable’ evening of music featuring an amazing cast much more talented than us,” says the pair.
Li and Yan are creators of the musicals Interstate, which won Best Lyrics' at the 2018 New York Musical Festival, and Miss Step. They are 2019 Dramatists Guild Foundation Fellows, MacDowell Colony Fellows, Lincoln Center Writers-in-Residence, and 2019–2020 Musical Theater Factory Makers.
