A few weeks back I went to the 30 Under 30 night at Playwrights Horizons, celebrating their new musical Fly By Night, written by Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick, and Kim Rosenstock. The cast was packed with fabulous actors: Adam Chanler-Berat, Allison Cast, Bryce Ryness, Henry Stram, and Patti Murin, to name a few.
Fly By Night was a musical all about love and fulfilling our destiny. Murin, an aspiring actress, and Case, a very meek but loving younger sister, move to New York City from some nowhere town and both end up falling in love with the same guy (Chanler-Berat). One’s destiny is to be with Chanler-Berat and one isn’t (though she may or may not be engaged to him already).
The cast, like I said, was fantastic. I especially loved Henry Stram as the charming and whimsical narrator.
I really did like the show, although I think it’s closing this weekend, so run! The afterparty included Shake Shake, sandwiches, cocktails, and a photobooth (above).
Totally a good time. Thanks, Playwrights Horizons!
