Today is the day! My 15-minute musical with Hyeyoung Kim, “Days of Rage” premieres with 4@15!
4@15 commissions musical theater writing teams to write mini-musicals for musical theater actors from the University of California Irvine’s NYC Satellite Program (Dr. Myrona DeLaney, Director). The writers are given two weeks to write the new musicals tailored specifically for the talents of the actors, culminating in a staged concert performance. More info on BroadwayWorld and on Playbill.
Performances are Friday, April 18, at 1:00 PM; and Saturday, April 19 at 11 AM and 2:30 PM. Tickets: $10 (general admission) available online at: 4at15uci2014.eventbrite.com. Performances at The Playroom Theater, 151 W 46th Street, 8th Floor.
“Days of Rage” is inspired by the activities of The Weatherman (who later became The Weather Underground) in 1969. While this piece is only 15 minutes, it will be expanded into a full-length musical. I’m very proud of the work we’ve done so far and would love for you to see the first major step in our musical’s journey.
Here is the show info:
