[Title of Show] chronicles its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and follows the struggles of the author and composer/lyricist and their two actress friends during the initial creative period, along with subsequent events leading up to the show's production.
[Title of Show] was chosen for production by the Musical Theatre Festival and premiered in September 2004, in New York City. It later ran off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2006, earning a second limited run the same year.
It played at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre in 2008 for 13 previews and 102 regular performances. Writers/stars Bowen and Bell, as well as director Michael Berresse all won Obie Awards for their work on the off-Broadway production, and Bell was nominated for a Tony Award for best book of a musical.
This is an honest musical look at putting a Broadway show together from the ground up... the trials, fears, teamwork, frustrations and successes that encompass a large project that ultimately runs on Broadway in the Big Apple.
Join director Carl Jordan ("Noises Off", "Boeing, Boeing", "Return to the Forbidden Planet", "Avenue Q") in this fun, upbeat, honest tribute to the Broadway process as seen by our own youthful wannabes in musical theatre.
