For more than a decade, Bound for Broadway has been letting audiences know about some of the best new shows currently in development for debut on the Great White Way. In past years, we've given you sneak peeks at shows like Next to Normal, Avenue Q and The Drowsy Chaperone.

This year host Liz Callaway will interview the writers of five new shows, who will share selections from their work.  A selection of songs will be performed by a phenomenal cast that includes Barbara Walsh (Falsettos, Company), Stephen Bogardus (Man of La Mancha), Ken Marks (Spider-Man, Hairspray), Adam Overett (The Light in the Piazza), Jeremy Morse, Jason “SweetTooth” Williams and many others.
