Music & Lyrics by Matthew Doers
Composer Matthew Doers is an electric new force on the cutting-edge musical theater scene. This high-octane evening features songs from his original show, Taking Step Three13, an edgy, propulsive, musical retelling of Dostoevsky’s classic, Crime and Punishment. With a smoking hot band and vocal pyrotechnics to match, this evening of new music theater promises to introduce a thrilling new voice on the block.
