We are humbled and excited at the same time that Remission’s first public performance will officially open the NYMF festival in New York on July 11th. The New York Musical Festival’s mission is to nurture the creation, production, and public presentation of stylistically, thematically, and culturally diverse new musicals to ensure the future vitality of musical theater. Plays chosen as Festival entrants have the chance to hone their message and material, and gain that essential of component: early advocates.
It is a very prestigious gig for us and the early buzz about the entire festival this year, as shown in this Theatermania article, is very exciting.
Our magnificent cast includes: Tony Nominee Emily Skeggs (Fun Home), Krystina Alabado (American Psycho), Gerard Canonico (Spring Awakening), Zakiya Young (Disgraced, Orange is the New Black), Perry Sherman (Amelie), Brad Standley (The 12, Body of Proof). Larry Pressgrove (Disaster!, [title of show]) has joined the creative team as Music Director, supportingour Director, Portia Krieger (assoc. director, Fun Home). Davenport Theatricals (DTE Management) is serving as our General Manager.
