Tickets are $50 and available online. Doors open at 7 p.m., and showtime is at 8 p.m.

In addition to his new album, Sheik’s critically-acclaimed musical adaption of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho will premiere on Broadway during the fall of 2015. Sheik was recently named Artist in Residence at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, where he serves as artistic advisor for the Institute’s Stagecraft and the Art of Performance class, as well as its Studio Performance Workshop.

Launching his musical career in 1996 with his self-titled debut, Sheik quickly earned a Grammy nomination for Best Male Vocal for his hit Barely Breathing, which spent 55 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. He subsequently garnered critical accolades for his unique brand of folk-pop music with White Limousine in 2006 and his 2-CD collection of songs titled Brighter/Later: A Duncan Sheik Anthology.

Sheik also composed the original score and collaborated with lyricist Steven Sater for Spring Awakening in 2007, which went on to win eight Tony awards. Sheik alone earned two awards for Best Orchestration and Best Original Score, as well as a Grammy award for Best Musical Show Album, which he also produced. He followed with the musical theater production Whisper House, which was directed by Peter Askin (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and written by Kyle Jarrow, and Hans Christian Andersen’s The Nightingale.
