    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    MARFA is the Chorus Line of cancer. Through a group protagonist, it presents a slice of life story much in the vein of The Band's Visit. The book and lyrics are finished and I can provide a rough melody for most of the songs. The song style is contemporary musical theater, probably best described as an easy rock style. I wholeheartedly believe that if we get this right, an all-star cast could be rounded up, due to the subject matter. Meanwhile, I am ISO a composer interested in collaborating to create enough recorded songs to shop the musical around.

    Composer/ Librettist Seeking Lyricist

    The project is a period book musical freely adapted from a popular novel in the public domain. This swashbuckling story contains strong characterizations in a timely serio-comic plot and is designed as a showcase for multi-talented performers. Romance, villainy, stage combat and clowning round out this accessible, mainstream entertainment. Candidates must be skilled in revealing character/extending narrative action through song and possess a love of language, knowledge of history, passion for musical theatre and ability to collaborate. I am an accomplished librettist and versatile composer who can write in a variety of styles with an individual voice, and my work has been successfully produced in major regional theatres across the U.S. I look forward to hearing from you....

    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer/ Librettist/ Lyricist

    Hello, my name is Adrian Dion Quarles and I am in the conceptualizing stages of a musical that has lived in my mind called CHURCH. The idea came to me while watching RENT and then again while performing in GODSPELL. As much as I love musical theatre and have been in a number of productions, I don't play an instrument and I don't write music. So I am looking for help anyone who would be interested in collaborating with me. I can write the story as well as put the story in song form. Please email me for more details about the story. I want to present a musical with a black church, CCM, coffee shop, artistic vibe.

    The Ratatouille Musical on TikTok inspired this, first of all... I have been working on all these lyrics that I have posted on my AzwesoSongs.com website and I thought since we are in a Pandemic and there are all these people looking to do something fun, why not just put it out to the Guild to see if any of you want to participate in a similar project with my lyrics as your inspiration to write songs for a TikTok/YouTube/Podcast and eventual stage musical? Hey, I can dream, can't I? Let's see if we can sew together a full project. I've already reached out on Twitter and Facebook, but I really would like to ask you all for help on this. Who knows, maybe it will be good? Let's put on a show.

    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer I have written the book and lyrics to a new musical called The Colony." The colony is an imaginary space where all the great artists in history reside. They want to retell art history through a musical comedy and they have chosen, Sheila, who started to write this musical, but is now in a coma in a hospital bed. They want to finish writing the musical for Sheila and bring back people to museums and theater once the Covid pandemic is over. The musical, if any art term applied, is on the surrealist side of life. Looking for a composer who can capture the absurd but doing it with a great sense of heart, love and joy in the expression.

    Librettist/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    I'm in the beginning stages of considering adapting a portion of my play ALABAMA STORY as a musical. The section in mind features Black and white characters — Lily (white) and Joshua (Black), childhood friends who meet in adulthood in 1959 Montgomery and explore their troubled past, their unique bond and a way forward in a time of social upheaval. Mindful that I am a white playwright who created this play through my white lens, I'm eager to become acquainted with African American composers who might wish to discuss partnering on the project, and might be open to working with a librettist-lyricist (me) to crack open and re-explore the material with music and an expanded community of characters.

    Playwright Seeking Playwright

    Hi! I'm seeking a playwright to help me finish my play. It's a full-length set during Passover at the beginning of the American Civil-War, and is about the attempted escape of a dying African slave from his slave-owning Jewish family. I'm about fifteen drafts in, have had two table reads and a staged reading, but I'm still not happy with it. I know where I want to go, but I work best with a collaborator. So! I'm seeking someone to join the team! I'm looking for someone kind, open, creative, compassionate, funny, and inspired, who feels drawn to the premise of my play in a deep way. I'm a former masterclass student at the Barrow Group in NYC, and have studied under Lisa Kron through La Mama ETC. I hope to self-produce this play once theatre is safe to resume. Let's make the magic happe...

    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    Playwright/Lyricist seeking composer for new musical based on the life of a 19th century French artist. The artist was a remarkable woman and completely ahead of her time in that she never allowed herself to be used or taken advantage of by the men of her period. She focused on her own, often selfish, needs rather than the famous male artists for whom she modeled and bedded on her own terms. From childhood to death, she lived “her way.” Because of her beauty and unique personality, she was able to escape her stigmatized social position to carve out a lucrative career as an artist’s model. And, as such, she began studying each of her artists/mentors/partners until she was ready to be revealed as a much accomplished, totally self-taught, recognized, and awarded impressionist artist by the en...
