MISS STEP is the new musical from the award-winning Queer Asian-American musical theatre writing team of Melissa Li and Kit Yan. MISS STEP is a heartfelt 80s dance musical comedy featuring a transgender/non-binary (TGNB) cast, live aerobics, stunts, competition, and exercise. This diverse and exhilarating show is a classic underdog story that portrays TGNB characters as both ordinary and extraordinary people, defying all odds to sing, dance, compete, and dazzle audiences. MISS STEP is for anyone with a dream, who loves the 80s, and who has ever found family in the most unexpected places.

music and lyrics by 

ARI AFSAR

A pop musical based on the true story of America’s first congresswoman, Jeannette electrifies the life and history of suffrage activist, social worker and Montanan, Jeannette Rankin. Elected to Congress in 1916—three years before women are granted the right to vote—Jeannette finds herself to be the only female voice within the halls of power to vote on women’s suffrage. Written by America's most produced playwright Lauren M. Gunderson and pop sensation Ari Afsar (Hamilton), Jeannette heralds one person’s radical voice in America’s ongoing journey toward equal rights for all. 


Jeannette was one of three new musicals selected for the O’Neill National Music Theater Conference in June 2019, and was presented in concert at SubCulture and Mostly New Musicals at Feinstein’s at Vitello’s.
