Ah, the internet, how it brings people together.
Like Lucky and I, for example. We met as… well. That’s another story for another party, best told when everyone’s slightly drunk (really, ask Joe Mantello).
Anyway. I digress. The real story here is that Lucky and I met our friend Sarah Taylor Ellis via the internet. Or via people we knew on the internet, at a theater people meet-up taking place in the Cosi across from the Winter Garden Theatre what feels like a dogs age ago. Sarah is the best — honestly one of the kindest, most thoughtful people we know.
Sarah is also, as it turns out, a composer. She writes with her friend Lane, and together, they make up the composing team Ellis and Williamson. So far, we love them best when they’re pairing Lane’s confessional, late-night-tumblog style lyrics with Sarah’s beautiful melodies. But we know there’s much more to come, including a recently completed musical of The Yellow Wallpaper.
You know what else is on its way? Intersections: The Music of Ellis and Williamson, their concert debt at 54 Below, which happens next Thursday, the 12th, at 11:30pm.
