Exposed is a new series brought to you by composer Drew Overcash. In the intimate setting of New World Stages' Time Out Lounge, a different artist (whether composer, composer team or singer/songwriter) will perform a set of music while sharing with the audience stories about why they write and what inspires them in a totally stripped and bare approach, allowing for dialogue and connection between artist and audience. Taking place at the end of each month in 2013, currently set to perform are Blake Pfeil (Billy & Blake), Bobby Cronin (BRATT Camp, The Concrete Jungle), Drew Gasparini (Crazy Just Like Me, Make Me Bad), Carner & Gregor (Unlock'd), Joey Contreras (This Thing Called Love), Drew Overcash (Boys Vs. Girls), Salzman & Cunningham (I Love You Because, Next Thing You Know), and Adam Gwon (Ordinary Days, The Boy Detective Fails). Additional artists and dates to be announced."
