a new musical

Welcome to the Hamptons…

You are cordially invited to attend Fourth of July Festivities at the Jordan Estate, located at 210 Amlent Avenue. Guests will include a young poet trying to reconnect with his past, a retired actress trying to escape it, and the child that will connect them in unexpected ways. Secret histories, desire, and loss collide in this darkly compelling new musical.

We’re hitting the stage!

nymf2015

After five years of development, we couldn’t be more pleased to announce that 210 Amlent Avenue is an official selection of the New York Musical Theatre Festival’s 2015 Next Link Project. Our script and demos rose to the top of a blind judging process and were selected by a Grand Jury of Tony Award®-winning professionals including Donna Lynne Champlin, Hunter Foster, Amanda Green, and Michael Cerveris. (They like us! They really like us!). The show will get it’s first-ever fully staged production as part of the festival this July.

Our creative team—Karl (composer/lyricist), Becky (librettist), and Samantha (director)—have been buzzing around behind-the-scenes with this news for a few weeks. We’ve been working on a budget, setting our fundraising goals, and starting to assemble our creative team for the production. But there’s so much more to do! Watch this space for some exclusive glimpses “behind the curtain,” as we share some of what goes into producing a festival show in NYC. (We are going to be learning a lot as we go!)

I mean metaphorical baby pictures, not real ones like this one of me rocking a red tracksuit.

You know when your mom pulls out your baby pictures and shows them to your friends? How proud she is, but also how dumb you used to look and act? And how embarrassing the whole thing is?

That’s what this’ll be like, except instead of baby pictures, it’s old (and brand new!) music from the show, and instead of my mom, it’s me. (more…)
