RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

EXPRESS (1946) in sound Bites 4.0

On Monday May 29th we presented the 1946 segment of EXPRESS in Sound Bites, an annual festival of 10-minute musicals.  This was the first time any of EXPRESS was staged in a traditional, non-immersive setting on the gorgeous Irene Diamond Stage at Signature Center Pershing Square.

We continue to develop this piece for other types of production.  EXPRESS is a musical in three parts, each of which takes place on a NYC subway car in a different time period (1946, 1964, and 1992).  The show tells the story of one woman’s life in New York, with each segment depicting a chance encounter that transforms her.
