The New York Musical Theater Festival (NYMF) has formed a new production exchange program with the Daegu International Musical Festival in South Korea. The new South Korean musical My Scary Girl, which NYMF will present this fall, will be the first exchange between the Festivals.

Girl, with book and lyrics by Kyoung-Ae Kang and music by Will Aronson, has already been produced in South Korea and it centers on a naïve professor whose new girlfriend may be a serial killer. The piece was produced last year by the South Korean festival and it will be presented during the first week of NYMF, which is scheduled for September 28 to October 18.

The festival in Daegu will give one NYMF show a full production next year. In addition to covering production costs, the Daegu festival will offer a cash prize given to the musical's creators. The selected show will be announced at the NYMF gala in November.
