Ten Brave Seconds tells the story of the day that 16-year-old Mike comes out of the closet and the cosmic change that affects his community. Mike is about to find out that it’s on the other side of the telling that all the good stuff sits waiting. This original story is about those tiny brave seconds that make up the gargantuan moments that tell you (and the world) who you are.

This is the first time that material from Ten Brave Seconds will be presented publicly.

The musical Ten Brave Seconds has music and lyrics by Will Van Dyke and book and lyrics by Jeff Talbott. The live presentation will feature excerpts from the show and a conversation with the writers.

AN ORIGINAL MUSICAL ABOUT A PLANT AND A HUMAN
WHO LEARN TO COMMUNICATE

IN ORDER TO UNITE AND HEAL

THEIR IMPERILED COMMUNITIES

Mimosa is the new musical from Lauren Taslitz (book and lyrics) and Danny Ursetti (music). The live presentation will feature excerpts from the show and a conversation with the writers.

Mimosa is a plant with a special gift: she can dance. Mom begs her to stop, concerned that she could be noticed by a human. Then along comes lonely, teenage human Molly, who catches sight of Mimosa dancing and is so delighted by her, she digs Mimosa up and takes her home. Together they learn to communicate in order to unite and heal their imperiled communities. Mimosa is a cautionary tale that asks us to see ourselves as natural parts of the natural world in order to preserve and save our environment. 

Mimosa has been developed with Michigan State University and is a recipient of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre’s (NAMT) 2020 inaugural 15-minute musical competition.
