Behind The Music-al 'Goes Behind Closed Doors'
In Behind the Music-al: Goes Behind Closed Doors, Georgia Stitt moderates a conversation about how emerging musical theater composers are exploring hidden worlds, and using the genre to give audiences a window into often obscure or closed off communities. What are the challenges a writer faces in researching and bringing a unique culture to life on the stage? What are the rewards of finding such a rare subject? Songwriters Tim Rosser & Charlie Sohne, Stephanie Salzman & Deborah Brevoort, and Kyle Ewalt & Michael Ian Walker look at their latest projects, and how each strives to teach an audience about a world they may not be familiar with and create a compelling musical.
