Let Me Try That Again
Great performers relive their terrible performances to benefit The Performing Arts Project.
On Sunday, November 3rd at Joe’s Pub, Steve Pasquale (The Bridges of Madison County, “Do No Harm”, “Rescue Me”) hosts an evening of fabulous performers sharing video of their most embarrassing moments onstage and then redeeming themselves by recreating that moment live on stage. Broadway musical director Mary-Mitchell Campbell (Big Fish, The Addams Family) will serve as the music director for the evening, which includes participation by Pasquale, Hunter Bell ([title of show], Grinch), Susan Blackwell ([title of show], “Side By Side”), Richard Kind (The Big Knife, “Mad About You”, “Spin City”), Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, “Do No Harm”), Krysta Rodriguez (First Date, “Smash”), Jeremy Shamos (The Assembled Parties, Clybourne Park), and David Yazbek (The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) At the end of the evening, the audience will vote on the star performer who most redeemed themselves through their efforts that night. Tickets are available here: joespub.com.
“This benefit is to remind us all that we all have failed. And failed miserably; in my case in particular,” says Pasquale. “But it’s also to remind us about persistence, and focus, and moving forward. And about recognizing how important it is to not take ourselves too seriously. It should be a crazy fun night.”
Let Me Try That Again is the inaugural benefit for The Performing Arts Project: a not-for-profit organization formed by a group of respected educators and entertainment industry professionals to help prepare the next generation of performers. The Performing Arts Project offers dynamic and constantly evolving annual programming, the cornerstone of which is a three-week summer intensive during the month of July. Funds raised during this benefit will go directly towards scholarships and student programming costs.
