NEW WORKS SERIES

PRE-PREMIERES OF NEW MUSICALS   *SEASON 13*

Adapted from the 2007 Sundance Award-winning indie horror film by Mitchell Lichtenstein, Teeth has book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner Michael R. Jackson (A Strange Loop) and book and music by award-winning writer Anna K. Jacobs (Pop!, Echo). Teeth tells the story of Dawn O’Keefe, an evangelical Christian teen with a powerful secret: she has teeth in her vagina. When the men in Dawn’s life try to exploit her, she is forced to choose between survival or destruction. The writers will present two songs from the show performed remotely.

Teeth was featured in NAMT’s 31st Annual Festival of New Musicals in 2019 and was presented at the O’Neill National Music Theater Conference, 54 Below, Sundance Institute, Musical Theatre Factory, and was developed through the Ars Nova Uncharted program.
