Australian-born Carmel Dean is perhaps best-known for music directing and/or vocal arranging the Broadway musicals American Idiot, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and the upcoming Hands on a Hardbody. She has worked with a wide range of performers including Chita Rivera, Green Day, Eve Ensler, and Phish, and also has a name that Americans find synonymous with a gooey, sticky, chewy substance. After many tiresome years of explaining that she is not, in fact, named after a candy, Carmel is finally embracing her sweet namesake and will present an evening of her own tasty compositions, with the help of delectable Broadway veterans Jay Armstrong Johnson (Hands on a Hardbody, Hair), Sally Wilfert (Assassins, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), Alysha Umphress (American Idiot, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever), Michael Winther (Mamma Mia, Songs from an Unmade Bed) and special guests Rebecca Naomi Jones (American Idiot) and Kate Wetherhead (Submissions Only).
