Singer/songwriter Michael Brunnock and actor John Duddy will be performing an excerpt from Michael’s new work, a musical drama highlighting the life and legacy of Irish Nationalist hero Roger Casement at Artists Without Walls’ First Anniversary Showcase, Tuesday, Jan. 28th at The Cell Theater in New York.
Michael possesses an extraordinary voice, and his song writing is profound. It’s no surprise that David Byrne (Talking Head’s) cast him to sing the role of an Irish musician on the brink of success whose voice guides Sean Penn through an emotional journey of self-discovery in the film ’This Must Be the Place’ (2012). The score by Byrne with lyrics by Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) called for a distinctive vocalist, which Brunnock is, and the song ‘If it falls, it falls’ won a David di Donatello award, equivalent to the Italian Oscars.
Former middleweight boxing champion turned actor, John Duddy, who made his New York City stage debut in Kid Shamrock, will soon be appearing in Artists Without Walls’ member Colin Broderick’s Father Who at The Theater 80. The show opens on February 26th.
Join these two terrific talents this Tuesday night, January 28th at Artists Without Walls’ First Anniversary Showcase at The Cell Theater, 7pm, 338 W. 23rd St., NYC.
