JD is performing at Lincoln Center's College Cabaret, February 27th at the David Rubinstein Atrium. After over 500 entries, 6 were chosen to perform as part of the event. JD is featured in Casey Joiner's Original Musical "Glass", with a selection of songs being performed at the evening's event.
American Musical and Dramatic Academy students Keri Kelly, Hunter Flora, Casey Joiner, Noah Newton, Charlotte Pickard, Isaac Matthews, and JD Martin together comprise the original cast of ‘Glass,’ an original musical with music and lyrics written by cast member Casey Joiner. The musical tells the story of several close friends in the fictional Pennsylvania town of Whiteside Chapel from the beginning of their teenage friendship in to a day eight years later when two of them get married in an outlandish ceremony.
The cast, representing three countries (the United States, Canada, and Australia,) met while studying at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in the summer of 2014. While conceived several years previously, the musical was written predominantly in the last six months and completed in early 2015. The cast continues to workshop in a student led environment; all music, lyrics, costumes, and characters were conceived by the cast.
We go to school a mere two blocks from Lincoln Center and, even after months of passing it and daring looks inside, we still see it as our ‘city on a hill.’
