    Muse Match, an evening that seeks to answer the question, "What happens when 18 composers go on a blind date with 18 singers?," will be presented Feb. 24, 2014, at 11:30 PM at 54 Below. Produced by Bill Coyne, the evening will benefit the Boys and Girls Club. "I have paired 18 composers with 18 singers they have never worked with," Coyne told Playbill.com.

Composers include Daniel B. Mate, Sam Salmond, Rob Rokicki, Julia Meinwald, Nathan Dame, Alexander Sage Oyen, Paul Fujimoto, Drew Fornorola, Caitlin Saylor Stephens, Eric Loehr, Nate Weida, Nikko Benson, Caleb Hoyer, Will Larche, Brett Macias, Eli Katz Zoller, David Alan Thornton and Andy Monroe.
