A 2015 Drama Desk nominee for Outstanding Musical with book and music by Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick, and Kim Rosenstock, the warmly melodic rock musical Fly by Night had its New York City premiere at the Mainstage Theater in May of 2014. Set in N.Y.C. during the blackout of 1965 (which hit the northeastern U.S. and Canada), the dark romantic comedy centers on sandwich maker/singer/songwriter Harold (Adam Chanler-Berat), two sisters, and the impact of the blackout. The cast recording took place in July of 2014 and features Allison Case, Peter Friedman, Michael McCormick, Patti Murin, Bryce Ryness, and Henry Stram. It was released in 2015 via Yellow Sound Label.
