Cheeyang & Khiyon: Eastbound - Joe's Pub Live! From the Archives

May 9, 2020

While Joe's Pub is temporarily closed to public access, join us for Joe's Pub Live! – a free series of live-streamed and archived performances from our iconic stage in New York City. Facilitating social connectivity during this time of physical distancing, Joe's Pub remains dedicated to supporting performing artists at every stage of their careers through sharing concerts with our audiences each Thursday, Friday & Saturday night at 8PM Eastern. 

Closures and cancellations because of COVID-19 have majorly disrupted access to revenue for artists all over the world. If you are enjoying this performance and are able to support, please consider supporting making a contribution by Venmo to @cheeyangmusic to support the writers of Eastbound whose production at the Adirondack Theatre Festival this summer has been canceled.
 

“I don’t want to just survive. I want to live.” Told through the soundscape of a contemporary score amalgamated with traditional Chinese folk music and Mandopop, EASTBOUND is a new bilingual musical about the unexpected meeting of two brothers from opposite sides of the world, their quests for survival, and the power of choice. 

Performed by Zachary Noah Piser (B'way: Dear Evan HansenWicked), Jessica Tyler Wright (B'way: War HorseSweeney ToddCompany), Ya Han ChangXiaoqing ZhangZachary Infante (Off-B'way: Alice by Heart; Regional: Kiss My Aztec) and Cheeyang Ng (Tour: Vocalosity).
