THE AWARD-WINNING

NEW MUSICAL

IS AN EXAMINATION OF THE

AMERICAN DREAM

The new musical American Morning has book, music and lyrics by Timothy Huang (The View From Up Here). Inspired by an article from the 2009 New York Times, American Morning tells the story of two immigrant cab drivers who share opposite shifts off the same medallion. The two men’s fates become intertwined as forced competition drives a wedge between them that culminates in a single desperate act that leaves one dead and the other brutalized. Huang will present two songs from the show performed remotely.

American Morning has been featured or developed in the ASCAP Musical Theatre Workshop, New York Theatre Barn, The Village Theater’s Festival of New Musicals in Seattle, NAMT’s Festival of New Musicals, Playwrights Horizons after winning the Richard Rodgers Award for Staged Readings (making its author the first and only Asian-American to win the award as a triple-threat composer/lyricist/librettist), Prospect Theater Company, received the New American Musical Award through B-Side Productions, and just released a studio cast album featuring Arielle Jacobs, Will Roland, Raymond J. Lee, Thom Sesma and more.

A PUNK-ROCK RETELLING OF THE 1791

HAITIAN

REVOLUTION

With book, music, and lyrics by Jaime Cepero (Smash), Francois and the Rebels is a punk rock telling of the 1791 Haitian Revolution. With a pulsing punk rock score, and a story pulled from historic events full of love, loss, and deception, Francois and the Rebels tells an important and often forgotten black history through the lens of an immersive high energy rock and roll experience. Cepero will present two songs from the show performed remotely.

Francois and the Rebels was featured in Musical Theatre Factory’s 4X15 and in Joe’s Pub New Works concert program.
