THE CONCRETE JUNGLE is a contemporary riff on Cyrano that follows Abby Burgess, a poet moonlighting as a bartender at "The Concrete Jungle" in Hells Kitchen. When a phone call changes her life forever, will Abby find the confidence to tell the truth to man she loves as he's falling for the wrong woman (her best friend Claire Christianson)?
After its hit London premiere, THE CONCRETE JUNGLE International Studio Recording featuring: Kate Shindle, Nick Adams, Alex Gaumond, Danielle Hope, Dean Chisnal, & Rebecca Trehearn as Abby was released by Great White Wax March 2013.
