[title of show]:
and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre
the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing
to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help
of their friends Susan and Heidi with Larry on the keyboards. With the
cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation
about what to write. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to
write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival's deadline
and dream about the show changing their lives.
[title of show]--taken from the space on the festival's
application form which asks for the [title of show]--follows Hunter and
Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative
self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes
they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons
about themselves as people, friends and artists.
[title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the
musical theater: a uniquely American art form--and to the joy of
collaboration. The musical received a Tony Award nomination for Best
Book of a Musical in 2009
