BASED ON THE NOVEL ABOUT A

TEENAGER WITH AUTISM

WHO IS ACCUSED OF MURDER

Based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Jodi Picoult (Between the Lines), House Rules has music by Daniel Mertzlufft (Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical) and lyrics by Kate Leonard (Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical). The live presentation will feature excerpts from the show and a conversation with the writers.

Jacob Hunt is a forensics-obsessed teenager living with autism in modern-day Vermont. With the help of his devoted mother and oft-overlooked younger brother, Jacob relies on strict routines to navigate daily life as smoothly as possible. The family is thrown into chaos, however, when Jacob’s beloved social skills tutor is found dead and Jacob is suspect number one. 

House Rules has been developed in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop.

COMING OF AGE

IS HARDER WHEN YOU'RE ALSO COMING OUT

The new musical Little Miss Perfect has music and lyrics by Joriah Kwamé (winner of the 2019 “Write Out Loud” Song Competition) and book by America’s most produced playwright Lauren Gunderson (I And You, Jeannette). The live presentation will feature excerpts from the show and a conversation with the writers.

Coming of age is even harder when you’re also coming out. Noelle's world turns upside down when she develops feelings for Malaya, the foreign exchange student being hosted by her conservative family. As class president, she also must confront her privilege and compliance when her high school refuses to take steps in being more inclusive. Noelle struggles to decide whether she will be true to herself and an ally to her peers, or if she will settle with simply being Little Miss Perfect.

Little Miss Perfect was featured in Taylor Louderman’s “Write Out Loud” Song Competition and will have a concept album released later this year.
