The New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) serves as the preeminent launching pad for a stylistically, thematically, and culturally diverse array of new musicals, and provides a way for artists to mount professional productions that reach their peers, industry leaders and musical theatre audiences. It discovers, nurtures, and promotes promising artists at all stages of development, and seeks to inspire diverse audiences through vibrant, accessible, powerful new work.
The NYMF has turned out such hits as Next to Normal, Altar Boyz, [title of show], and The Great American Trailer Park Musical. We are honored and excited to be a special part of this year’s lineup!

The thing about spring is it just makes me want to dance. What’s wrong with that, you say? Well nothing, unless you’re strapped to a desk typing at a rate of 70 wpm. And why does it always seem that the most beautiful weather comes with the most excruciating deadlines?
Still, there was some good news. I heard from my friend in Greece, and she told me all about this incredible program where you travel the countryside putting on shows. Sounds like a dream job! I’m so impressed with all she has done since graduation. I feel like while I’ve hidden behind a computer screen and shrunk from life, she’s gone out and grabbed adventure and her dreams by the reins and told them where to go! It’s inspiring to see, really. But it does make me feel like a little chicken.
Something she said to me really got me thinking. And it was a pretty simple thing to say, too. When I told her I was so proud of her accomplishments, but could never do them myself, she simply said, “Why not?”
