59E59 Theaters has welcomed Prospect Theater Company for a three-year residency that will premiere one new musical a year.

First up in the fall is Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk's The Mad Ones, a retitled version of their musical The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown. It will be directed by Stephen Brackett and run November 7-December 17.

The Mad Ones immerses audiences in the complex inner life of Samantha Brown — a young woman on the brink of change. Sitting in her parent's driveway, Samantha faces a choice: Will she follow in her mother's footsteps, or take the dare of her impetuous best friend and chart a new path?
