26 August – 11 September 2010

In 2004, Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell wanted to enter the inaugural New York Music Theatre Festival (NYMF). The problem was, Jeff and Hunter didn’t have a musical. With the application deadline set, three weeks later they entered [TITLE OF SHOW], named after the first line in the festival application form.

[TITLE OF SHOW] takes a witty look at both the pleasures and perils of the artistic process, the art and business of creating an original show in a culture dominated by revivals and reality TV stars.

The plot follows Jeff, Hunter, Heidi and Susan as they negotiate a musical theatre obstacle course of finding backers, generating publicity, and finally making it to Broadway. As they make the journey from nobodies to somebodies, [TITLE OF SHOW] is a witty, melodic and uproarious musical about making ones dreams come true.
