Description
Tony Award winner BD Wong and videographer Richert Schnorr are re-conceiving the theatrical song cycle "Songs from an Unmade Bed" as a collection of music videos, reflecting life during the COVID-19 pandemic. The videos will stream as a benefit for Broadway Cares’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund. First produced by New York Theatre Workshop in 2005 and released on Ghostlight Records not long after, the work takes on new meaning and provides unique perspectives in the wake of the current coronavirus crisis. "Songs from an Unmade Bed" explores the inner musings and romantic life of a gay man living in New York City. It was created by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning lyricist and librettist Mark Campbell with 18 composers: Debra Barsha, Mark Bennett, Peter Foley, Jenny Giering, Peter Golub, Jake Heggie, Stephen Hoffman, Lance Horne, Gihieh Lee, Steven Lutvak, Steve Marzullo, Brendan Milburn, Chris Miller, Greg Pliska, Duncan Sheik, Kim D. Sherman, Jeffrey Stock and Joseph Thalken. Wong and Schnorr set up a makeshift recording studio in their living room. All props and costumes are their own and reflect the adaptive skills all New Yorkers have had to exercise during the pandemic.
