Nick Blaemire, Lauren Marcus, Andy Mientus, Krysta Rodriguez and George Salazar Sing a Uncovered Jonathan Larson Song

The song in this video is “Greenstreet” and unearthed Jonathan Larson song. Larson wrote Rent and tick tick Boom, the former a landmark Broadway game-changer and the latter a beloved musical gem. He was a brilliant, groundbreaking creator of musical theatre who died tragically at the age of 35, before seeing the worldwide acclaim his work would receive. Jonathan was posthumously awarded Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, and his songs have come to be treasured and performed in 25 languages, from Mexico to Japan to Italy, from summer camps to the silver screen to Broadway.

But what about all of Jonathan’s songs we’ve never heard?

The Jonathan Larson Project is an evening of Jonathan’s unheard work. Songs from never-produced shows like 1984 and Superbia. Songs that were cut from Rent and tick tick Boom. Songs written for theatrical revues and songs written for the radio. Songs never before publicly performed or recorded. Songs about politics and love and New York City.

Starring Nick Blaemire (tick tick Boom, Found, Godspell), Lauren Marcus (Be More Chill, Beatsville, Company), Andy Mientus (NBC’s “Smash,” Spring Awakening, Les Misérables), Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening, First Date, The Addams Family), and George Salazar  (Be More ChillThe Lightning Thief, tick tick Boom).

Directed and conceived by Jennifer Ashley Tepper. Assistant produced by Alexa Spiegel.

Music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Charlie Rosen (Be More Chill, Prince of Broadway, Honeymoon in Vegas, Charlie Rosen’s Broadway Big Band). Featuring a five-piece band including musical director Natalie Tenenbaum, Charlie Rosen, Cody Owen Stine, Megan Talay, and Marques Walls with Danielle Gimbal as copyist.
