BASED ON THE GRIMM'S FAIRY TALE

THE DEVIL WITH THE 3 GOLDEN HAIRS

The Lucky Boy, the new musical from Kirsten Childs (The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin), is a satirical one-act musical which examines what happens when a country is held hostage by a tyrant’s rule. Cruel King Ambrose kills citizens who don’t proclaim him adorable. When it’s predicted that an illegal alien baby named Lucky will grow up to surpass him in adorability, Ambrose throws the child into a nuclear waste bin. Eighteen years later, Ambrose discovers Lucky‘s still alive and hella adorable. The Lucky Boy is a Penn State University Musical Theatre commission.

A NEW MUSICAL ABOUT LIVING WITH

BORDERLINE

PERSONALITY

DISORDER

The new musical Borderline has music and lyrics by Benjamin Velez and a book by Aryanna Garber. Borderline is a musical dramedy about a girl living with Borderline Personality Disorder and struggling for normalcy amidst a revolving door of therapists, medications, and dysfunctional relationships. This deeply personal story explores the highs and lows, heartache and absurdity, of living on the borderline.

 

Borderline is the recipient of the 2018 Weston Playhouse New Musical Award, and has also been developed in the BMI Workshop, the O'Neill Musical Theater Conference, and the Dramatist Guild Fellows Program.
