Featuring songs by Stephen Sondheim, the master of the modern musical, MARRY ME A LITTLE has been reimagined by director KEMAR JEWEL as the story of two queer men of color, searching for love in the city that never sleeps. Two strangers, alone in their apartments on a Saturday night, reveal their secret dreams and fantasies, never knowing that they’re just one wall away from each other. With trunk songs from Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, Company, and more, this new production gives voice to love rarely seen on stage.
KEMAR JEWEL, an international director and choreographer from Philadelphia, became an internet sensation for his video “Voguing Train” (2014). Kemar’s projects have garnered over six million views across social media platforms and have been featured by the Huffington Post, TIME, Fox News and in film festivals across the globe. In theatre, he recently directed “Legendary” for Underground Arts and “Songs For Marsha” at the Helen Mills Theatre. B.A., Temple University.
This production and fellowship is supported, in part, with funds from The Leo Shull Foundation for the Arts. Marry Me A Little is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All Authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
