Preview the music of EDDIE THE MARVELOUS, WHO WILL SAVE THE WORLD

Check out this gorgeous live rendition of “Make a Wish” by the Kilbanes with actor Reggie White from Eddie the Marvelous, Who will Save the World:

In this innovative new musical, Eddie the Marvelous fronts a band, struts the stage, saves the world. Eddie the Real can’t leave the house, can’t hold a job, can’t keep a friend. His mom makes every sacrifice, but when she finds a new man neither Eddie knows what to say or what to sing.

Eddie the Marvelous, Who Will Save the World will be a part of our 2016 New Works Festival, with a cast that includes White.
