Broadway’s Brian d’Arcy James (Something Rotten and Hamilton), Daniel Breaker (Book of Mormon and Passing Strange) and Justin Johnston tackle the extraordinary concept album, Shaming of the True by Kevin Gilbert.
Gilbert, co-writer of the Grammy winning Record All I Wanna Do, creates a potent and original song cycle from the influences of rock, pop and fugue structures. Through this sophisticated and visceral music, Gilbert examines an artist’s need for evolution, cultural influence and agency in these uncertain times.
