Select a performance
For one night only, and exclusively here in Norwich, join US musical theatre composer and singer/songwriter Drew Gasparini for a very special performance of his songs. Drew will be joined by some of the workshop company of We Aren’t Kids Anymore, a musical adaptation of his semi-autobiographical song-cycle currently in development with Norwich Theatre.
Drew Gasparini is an award-winning musical theatre composer/lyricist and singer/songwriter. Some of his musicals include the Broadway-bound adaptation of The Karate Kid (with original screenwriter Robert Mark Kamen), as well as Its Kind of a Funny Story for Universal, and The Whipping Boy (both with writing partner Alex Brightman). In 2020 Drew wrote his semi-autobiographical song-cycle We Aren’t Kids Anymore. The piece is now currently available for license through Concord Publishing.
He has performed his brand of theatre concerts all over the world from his regular shows at 54 Below, to performances at Lincoln Center in NYC, The Kennedy Center in D.C, and alongside the Virginia Symphony Orchestra at the Ferguson Center for the Arts. The popularity of Drew’s theatre concept album I Could Use a Drink has led to sold out concerts all over the globe, including a concert production at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End in 2021.
In 2019 Drew co-wrote the songs for the highly publicized Super Bowl advertising stunt, Skittles Commercial: The Musical starring Michael C. Hall. The show went on to win several advertising awards and was voted #1 best Super Bowl ad of 2019 by Forbes. Drew’s songwriting has also been heard on TV in shows such as NBC’s Smash and The Biggest Loser, CMT’s Gainesville, Oxygen’s The Next Big Thing, and ad campaigns for Hotels.com, and Ford.
