BASED ON THE 2014 FILM
AND THE 2004 NOVEL
WHERE RAINBOWS END
Based on the 2014 Lionsgate film Love, Rosie and the 2004 novel Where Rainbows End, the new musical Love, Rosie has music and lyrics by Zack Zadek (Deathless) and a book by Peter Duchan (Dogfight). Rosie and Alex meet at eighteen. They’re from different worlds, a gulf of misunderstanding between them, but they share a passion for music—and for each other. The youthful choices they make, the leaps they take together, will change the course of their lives, pushing them closer together and pulling them apart. Two interconnected lives are tracked over a decade, asking the question: what is a love story?

Love, Rosie was developed in summer 2019 at Vassar and New York Stage and Film’s Powerhouse Theater, and this is the first time that any material will be presented publicly.

A NEW MUSICAL ABOUT A
The new musical Wonder Boy has book, music, and lyrics by Jaime Jarrett. When Jackson steals a mysterious drug from his super genius twin sister, he transforms into Wonder Boy, a superhero with unparalleled strength, the ability to fly, and automatic self-healing powers. Jackson must navigate his new identity as a superhero, as well as his identity as a transgender man. As he battles crime, reconnects with his lesbian ex-girlfriend, and begins to lose his twin sister to a mystifying memory loss disease, he must face his masculinity, his vulnerability, what it means to be a superhero, and what it means to be a man.
Wonder Boy has been developed by The Dare Tactic, New York Musical Festival, and Musical Theatre Factory where it received a staged reading in January 2020.
