In the Wings Promotions (ITW) is proud to announce a new concert series called THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS, starring Noelle Hannibal and featuring Musical Direction by META nominee Ian Baird. Noelle and Ian love music. Known in Montreal for their top notch musical theatre productions, this special concert series will explore songs from a variety of genres. The upcoming LOVE EDITION will feature songs of love and heartbreak, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Originally from Los Angeles, Noelle Hannibal made her professional theatre debut playing Chrissy in Hair, then moved to Ireland to tour the country starring in Lock Up Your Daughters as Hilaret. Select theatre credits include Chicago (Velma Kelly), Gypsy (Mazeppa) South Park (Sheila), Gefilte Fish Chronicles: The Musical (Basha), The Virgin Courtesan (Arielle), Rent (Mimi), Merton of the Movies (Countess), Chess (Florence), The Who’s Tommy (Mrs. Walker), Hair (Sheila), The Last Five Years (Cathy) and Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Yitzhak). For her performance in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Forget the Box said, “clad in the beard and shapeless clothing of a drag king, her portrayal conveys the depression, fear, and passive aggressiveness of someone in an abusive relationship. You feel it in every gesture, in every insult muttered under his breath, and in every passive reaction to Hedwig yanking the microphone from his hand when his powerful feminine voice breaks through hers.“ Noelle has performed multiple times at 54 Below – Broadway’s Supper Club in New York City, alongside many Broadway stars. Film/TV credits include: Star Trek: First Contact, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek: Voyager and Cracker: Mind over Murder.
Ian Baird is a pianist and composer originally from the east coast currently living in Montreal. With a master’s degree in composition from UdeM, these days you can find Ian playing for ballet classes at l’École Supérieure de Ballet along with musical directing and playing for theatrical productions throughout Montreal.
