    Librettist/ Playwright Seeking Composer/ Lyricist

    I have finally figured out a way to do KING KONG, The Musical (The novel is in the Public Domain) that does not require a huge, animatronic puppet, but can be done on a small, human scale, that still captures the wonder and physical beauty of Skull Island and the excitement of the Empire State Building conclusion. I am an experienced musical theatre book writer and lyric writer - willing to share lyric writing, or just do book. This would be a show that medium and smaller theaters can do without needing a huge cast, and budget-breaking special effects. But you gotta love Kong -

    I've written a play called "I'm Still Here" that I want to turn into a musical. The show is about an aging, but infamous Don Rickles-esque comedian named Eddy Wayne. He started out as a standup in the 70's and worked his way into primetime, winning Emmys and so many other awards for his hit sitcom, he was the king of Hollywood from the late 70's-early 90's. It's now 2020 and we're in the age of reboots, NBC wants a reboot of his sitcom, but something's off with him, but his restaurant owning wife, and college baseball star son don't seem to notice. The only one that does is his daughter, an artist, and the obvious older sister they don't pay attention too. He has dementia, and a rapid case at that, Eddy has to come to terms with his life and how he wants to leave it. The play explores them...

    Librettist/ Playwright Seeking Composer

    I am a playwright who has just recently moved into writing for musical theatre in the past few years. I am currently working on a 9-actor 90-minuteish original musical about a woman who discovers her birth father's family across the country after taking a DNA test. The musical style could be country, rock, contemporary musical theatre- I am still early in the process. I will say I am looking to do this piece with a minimal orchestra (maybe just 3-4 instruments in total). This is definitely a project that needs to be discussed further to see if we could work together.

    Playwright Seeking Composer

    I am a book writer looking for a composer for my new rock musical, "Stilettos and Steel." The show is set in San Francisco in the 1960s and is based on the true story of Jesse Rahlston, a 17-year-old girl from a middle-class family in the San Fernando Valley, who became the top gangster pimp of the Tenderloin District. It’s a coming-of-age tale of a "baby butch" set in a notorious red-light district teeming with hookers, drugs, and crooked cops. Gay, trans, and drag refugees, attracted to what had become a “gay mecca,” fight to survive on the streets of one of the few neighborhoods in the country where they can live openly. A first draft of the book was read at New Musicals Inc. in North Hollywood in December to an enthusiastic response. I look forward to collaborating with a composer wh...

    I am a NC playwright who has written a full-length, Southern Gothic style musical entitled "Hard Time County" that takes place in the Carolinas in the 1980s during the textile mill shutdowns. I need a composer to finish the musical. I have been working with respected NC Americana singer/songwriter David Childers who writes for the Avett Brothers. David, however, is unable to finish the project and has given his blessings for me find a composer as musical theatre is not his background. I should also note that esteemed NC musical theatre director, Billy Ensley, has read the libretto of "Hard Time County" and is eager to do a reading of the show in Charlotte once the music is completed. Here is a synopsis of "Hard Time County:" It's the 1980s and in the last gasps of textile mill glory, a...

    My stage play, Big Toot, is a political satire on the Trump administration. Can you satirize the man who’s a satire of himself? Well I have. The play already has several lyrical passages which invite music. There are even places where the cast chants. I can easily write more for melodic ideas you have. The play is designed as a fun evening of theater and passes into farce many times. I hope for ten or fifteen songs that would flesh the work out as a viable musical that could be shown to backers. Below is a cast list and a synopsis. It is full length and has a cast of seven: Toot Owner & CEO of the Blue Heaven Amusement Park Kushie Toot’s valet and adopted son Mother Toot Toot’s mother Kissy Bazoom Toot’s lover Wince Imposter called Doc Fok Gasc...

    Composer/ Lyricist Seeking Librettist/ Lyricist

    Looking for a book writer/lyricist or book writer to either work on your current ides, or some ideas and themes I have. Prefer more dramatic emotional themes regarding strength of human spirit, search for authenticity, and deeper values that can touch and serve the audience. I have a strong love of the more classical musical comedy (great melodies, harmony and lyrics) so hope to meet a more contemporary based writer to bring both our strengths together. Prefer substance over style, with the emphasis on a great story, further enhanced by the score. Can write in pop, r&b, jazz, and standard musical theater.

    Librettist/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    I've just completed the book (and seed lyrics) to a small scale musical title "Fat, a Fable", about an impossibly enormous girl (fattest person on earth). Tone is a bit Hedwig, and a bit Cinderella. I have worked closely with Hal Prince on another large scale piece I wrote, and I'm also the bookwriter/lyricist for "DogMusic", which enjoyed a very successful run in LA at Theater West years ago. I would like to find an imaginative composer with a gift for strong melody to partner with on this, and can send part, or all of the book to any interested (and interesting) composers. I live in LA and NYC. Thanks.

    Does anyone out there know a FABULOUS actor (M or F) who might be interested in collaborating on a 1-act, one-person (~70-min.) play (working title: "Infinity") in which the character, who is some sort of university lecturer, gradually goes mad trying to explain/comprehend/ describe the concept of infinity to his/her "class" (i.e., the audience.)
