New Writers, New Musicals: Jonathan Larson® Grants 2009 (Working In The Theatre #374)
Our guests – 2009 Jonathan Larson Grant® recipients Mark Allen, Dave Malloy, Thomas Mizer and Curtis Moore – tell us what these Grants and others mean to them and their work; how they became involved in musical theatre; the programs and workshops that helped their work move forward; what parameters they work within when writing for musical theatre; how much license they give to others to interpret their work; what they do to sustain themselves financially while pursuing their musical passion; dealing with the business aspects of writing and composing; and what Broadway represents for them.
An acclaimed fixture on New York television and in the theatre community for 30 years, the American Theatre Wing’s “Working in the Theatre” offers an unprecedented forum for the meeting of theatrical minds.
