The Loneliest Girl in San Diego!

I am so thrilled to get to share the news that The Loneliest Girl in the World will have its world premiere production at Diversionary Theatre in San Diego, CA in 2018!

With Diversionary’s Artistic Director Matt Morrow at the helm, the show will run May 24 through July 2, 2018. (Only 361 days until the first rehearsal, not that I’m counting.) Before the production, Julia and I will get to head out to San Diego later this year to do some work and meet some San Diegans.

Founded in 1986, Diversionary’s mission is to “provide an inspiring and thought provoking theatrical platform to explore complex and diverse LGBT stories, which influence the larger cultural discussion” and to “foster and amplify the next generation of LGBT voices by providing live entertainment in a dynamic, inclusive and provocative environment that celebrates and preserves our unique culture.”

To top it all off, the rest of the season is filled with West Coast premieres of work by some amazing playwrights and peers. Check out the rest of the season on their website!

Big thanks to NAMT for their generous support of the production.

AMTA

Julia and I are pleased to be working with students at The American Musical Theatre Academy (AMTA) on songs from our collection. AMTA was founded in London in 2010 as a training ground for musical theatre performers, and a program began in New York this past fall. Over the next few weeks, along with music director extraordinaire Rich Silverstein, we’ll be spending time with a class of 8 students as they learn our songs (and learn some of the skills needed to work on a new musical. It’s such a fun chance for us to revisit some of our favorite material, and a great way to meet the next generation of musical theatre performers! Thanks to co-founder Christie Miller for getting us involved!
