[title of show]

The CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED Broadway Musical

Presented by Mike & Andrea Scholz, Henson & Susan orser, and Michael Snow

“genial, unpretentious, and far funnier that many of the more expensively manufactured musicals that make it to Broadway these days.”

-The New York Times

Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with their friends Susan and Heidi. [title of show] – taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show] – follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression.

In the span of 90 minutes, Jeff and Hunter write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists.  [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre – a uniquely American art form – and to the joy of collaboration.  The musical recieved a Tony Award nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.

As the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center develops its reputation as a producer of professional music theater, the focus on new musical development in [title of show] was too perfect to pass up.  Audiences track alongside the story of Hunter, Jeff, Heidi, and Susan as they go through the obstacles that lay ahead bringing a show to Broadway, just as WMPAC works through the labyrinthine processes of professional play development.
