The Musicals Of Tomorrow is one of the first podcast platforms for new musicals in development and premiered on the Broadway Podcast Network in August 2021.


Experience the musicals of tomorrow — today! Get a glimpse inside the blueprint of an original musical being developed in real time - with New York Theatre Barn's podcast: The Musicals of Tomorrow. Hosts Joe Barros (Artistic Director) and Jen Sandler make space to speak in community with musical theatre writers and their creative teams while lifting up original culture shifting musicals in development. Each original musical’s intention, content and journey are unique and extraordinary to the storytellers who create them. There is no formula for musical theatre, except authenticity.

The Musicals of Tomorrow is available on Apple Music, Spotify and everywhere you can listen to podcasts. Co-Produced and edited by Pauls Macs and Héctor Flores Jr., episodes will be released bi-monthly on Thursdays. Our theme song, “The Music of Tomorrow”, was written by Lynne Shankel and Sara Cooper for their all-female identifying musical Perpetual Sunshine and the Ghost Girls.
