I was originally suppose to attend Ryan McCartan’s debut at Feinstein’s/ 54 Below, but was detained. I sent another reviewer (see review tomorrow) to catch this multi faceted young man, as I am convinced he is a star on the rise. I called after the concert to see what Jeffrey thought and was amazed, touched and so proud at what he told me. Because of that conversation, when I was asked to interview Mr. McCartan, I knew the tough questions I needed to ask. This prolific, brave man opened up and this is the result.
McCartan, is currently staring in Scotland PA. Off Broadway. This talented performer also took the community by storm in Wicked and, Heathers, but is know for his role on Disney Channel’s “Liv and Maddie”. A few days ago he made his solo show debut at Feinstein’s/ 54 Below. This singer-songwriter, Broadway performer, pop music producer, and guitarist, has been creating art all over the world since the age of 8, in many different forms. This intimate evening not only displayed his passion for acoustic covers of musical theater, but pop classics and originals.
You can see Ryan’s concert and hear his story at Feinstein’s/ 54 Below, 254 West 54th St. with special guest stars Taylor Iman Jones (Scotland, PA, Head Over Heels) and Brittney Johnson (Wicked) Nov 11th and Dec 9th at 7pm.
