Max Vernon’s Existential Life Crisis Lullaby at Joe’s Pub
April 27, 2019: Max Vernon returned to Joe’s Pub on April 23 with Existential Life Crisis Lullaby, a concert, featuring special guests Andy Mientus, Michael Longoria, Jo Lampert, Fancy Feast, Sophia Ramos, Helen Park, Gianna Masi, Avery Leigh Draut, Michelle Geo and Leah Lane. Ellie Heyman directed Vernon’s six-month residency and series of shows at Joe’s Pub.
Vernon’s Off-Broadway musical The View UpStairs (which featured Longoria in its Off-Broadway bow) was recently announced to make its London premiere at the Soho Theatre in July. Vernon is also the composer-lyricist of the award-winning Off-Broadway musical KPOP. Vernon’s musicals have received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical, three Drama Desk Award nominations, a Jonathan Larson Grant, and the Richard Rodgers Award.
“We memorized 210 pages of script, presented 51 iconic guest performers, handmade 30 costumes, built 6 completely different musical sets, and beguiled over 1000 audience members. To everyone who went on the wild 6-month marathon ride with me,” stated Vernon, “I have infinite gratitude and feel creatively transformed by our experience together. I will remember it for the rest of my life. Thank you. Existential Life Crisis Lullaby, out.”
