Theatre Building Chicago's Musical Theatre Writers Workshop presents Crossroads at Thirty, a "mini-musicals" showcase. Each writing team is given one identical theme, line of dialogue & lyrical image - yet the finished results are wildly unique, fresh new musicals! The introductory workshop members comprise four teams, creating four original and unique one-act musicals:
"On the Charts": Natalja Aicardi (book), Nathan Dame (music), Dan Weitzman (lyrics)
"30th & Main": John Reents (book), Dave Flippo (music), Joycella Omerey (lyrics)
"Free and Clear": Larry Carpenter (book), Jeff Bouthiette (music), Francesca Peppiatt (lyrics)
"News on the Half-Hour": Lisa Evans (book), Richard Brode (music), Jonathan Bernales (lyrics)
Stage Director Josh Penzell and Music Director Brandon Magid helm the cast, featuring Amanda Aldinger, Heather Connelly, Ian Daniel McLaren, Karla Serratto and Luke Siddall.
