A Night of New Musical Theatre

February 9th at 2:30pm

 

 

 

 

CenterStage presents selections from two new musicals by current students and graduates.

Our Man Harry

Music by Rebecca Nisco | Book & Lyrics by Lindsay Adams

Determined to find her husband who is serving as a medic during the Civil War, Harriet disguises herself as a man and enlists. Her journey takes her into unfamiliar territory, teaching her about sacrifice, family, and how little she knows about her own country. 

Where the City Sings

Music by Evan Brende | Book & Lyrics by Nicholas Rao

Little awning, little sign – little everything but the line of cranky, cupcake-craving tourists. It’s just another day for the famous Magnolia Bakery, in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Until a sudden fire alarm forces the store to evacuate, disbanding the hungry crowd. More determined than the rest, a small party of 4 strangers (a middle-aged couple from the midwest, a cynical local girl, and an ambitious young YouTuber) decide to stick it out across the street, in Abingdon Square, and wait for the store to reopen. They are joined by an intoxicated beggar, who – at the YouTuber’s behest – sings his life story to a camera phone. Hypnotized by the display of musical frankness, the others follow suit, all revealing deeper motives that have drawn them to Magnolia Bakery. Matters are complicated by the sudden arrival of the NYPD (New York Police Department), the philosophical musings of an inquisitive hot dog vendor, and the arrival of one more mysterious stranger. Could these events and characters all be connected? And what draws them to Magnolia? And will the crowd ever get their cupcakes?
