    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...

    I have researched and written a play about a real all female mixed race jazz band, but I need a black co-writer to help me rewrite from an African-American perspective.
