Meet the creative teams behind some of the best new musicals headed to New York theaters, and be the first to see songs and scenes from the shows! Past Bound for Broadway audiences have gotten sneak peek at Tuck Everlasting, Next to Normal, Avenue Q and The Drowsy Chaperone.
“I love the format of Bound for Broadway,” says Callaway. “It’s so great getting to see new writers and new shows at different points in the development of their pieces, and I really enjoy talking to the writers about their creative process. I have such admiration for writers and composers. As the performer, you’re as good as your material, and I sometimes feel like writers and composers don’t get enough credit.”
Book by Tony nominee Craig Lucas (An American in Paris; The Light in the Piazza); Lyrics by Nathan Tysen (Tuck Everlasting); Music by Dan Messé (of the Brooklyn-based roots band Hem)
This new musical is based on the Oscar-winning 2001 French film starring Audrey Tatou as a shy Parisian waitress with a wild imagination.
The More Things Change
Book & Lyrics by Kellen Blair; Music by Joe Kinosian
Murder for Two writers Kinosian and Blair will introduce this backstage musical comedy about two middle-aged actors battling to set the record straight about their shaky romantic past.
Book & Lyrics by Scott Burkell; Music by Paul Loessel
When letters begin to fall from a monument in town, government officials ban them one by one. Chaos ensues until a determined teenage girl rallies the community to fight for freedom of speech. This unique musical is part romance, part clever word game and part adult fable that reminds us of how precious our liberties are; how quickly unbridled extremism can take them from us; and how important it is to have the courage to stand up for what we believe.
The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen
Book & Lyrics by Lezlie Wade; Music by Daniel Green
Adapted from the children’s book by the award-winning late writer Lloyd Alexander (best known for his “Chronicles of Prydain” and “The Black Cauldron” series), this musical takes place in ancient China and follows the magical journey of Prince Jen and his quest to save his kingdom from destruction.
