L Morgan will be a featured performer in Jonathan Brielle’s Broadway Under the Stars benefit concert in Tewksbury, NJ on September 14, 2019 at 8pm. The concert features writer/composer/lyrisist Jonathan Brielle performing selections from his theatrical shows in development with Broadway luminaries and a world-class 8-piece band including rhythm and horn sections with players from Broadway, the Rolling Stones and Paul Simon bands. Proceeds from the event and live auction will benefit Broadway Babies.



L Morgan will play Cassandra in a presentation of Éamon Boylan’s new musical Femmebodys on September 13, 2019 at Playwrights Downtown with Musical Theatre Factory. Femmebodys, or: the way we move is the way our bodies move, the way we walk each block. It is a mosaic of trans sisterhood, of solidarity, of a day in the life.

Michael R. Jackson’s acclaimed musical A Strange Loop, which recently wrapped its extended Off-Broadway run at Playwrights Horizons, will release an original cast album September 27 on the Yellow Sound label. 

Jackson wrote book, music, and lyrics for the musical that explores the thoughts of Usher, a black, queer writer working a job he hates while writing his original musical: a piece about a black, queer composer working a job he hates while writing his original musical.

Jackson and Michael Croiter co-produce the recording. For more info: Playbill Article: ASL Original Cast Album

SOFT BUTTER Musical Album Release

"Our ancestors. Gertrude Stein, James Baldwin, Nina Simone, but also the mothers in my family, trans activists in the 60s, anyone who hung out with Yoko Ono. Process, Undoing, Space, Transformation."

The voices of Soft Butter include Boylan, L Morgan Lee (A Strange Loop), Dana Aliya Levinson (Adam, The Dress You Have On), Esco Jouléy (Runaways, Galetea) and Milo Longenecker (suck + blow, AD of Sacred Circle Theatre Company).
