Piece -- The New Musical by Scott Alan/Tara Smith
Finally! Something new to report on this beautiful, amazing musical! This is semi-old news, but just incase you don't know:
National Alliance for Musical Theatre
Festival of New Musicals 2006
Dates: October 8 & 9, 2006
In 1989 the Festival of New Musicals was created to provide members of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre with a forum to celebrate the new musicals that were being produced and presented around the country. Since then, the Festival has introduced musical theatre producers to 170 musicals and 300 writers from around the world. More than three-fourths of these shows have gone on to subsequent productions and tours, been printed in publishers' catalogues, and recorded on cast albums.
Held every fall over two days in New York City, the Festival showcases a select group of new musicals before an invited audience of NAMT members and industry professionals, with the experience and resources to move the work forward. The musicals are presented as 45-minute staged readings.
Past Festival productions include Bob Martin, Don McKallar, Lisa Lambert, and Greg Morrison's The Drowsy Chaperone, Richard Morris, Dick Scanlan and Jeanine Tesori's Thoroughly Modern Millie, Stephen Schwartz and John Caird's Children of Eden, Kirsten Childs' The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin, George Stiles and Anthony Drewes' Honk!, Jason Robert Brown's Songs For A New World, and Hunter Foster and David Kirshenbaum's Summer of '42.
