Performances of the world premiere musical Crossing, featuring a book by Grace Barnes and score by Matt Conner (with additional lyrics by Barnes), begin tonight at Washington, D.C.'s Signature Theatre.

The production weaves together the stories of eight people from different decades throughout the past century who come together at a train station in search of new beginnings. Conner's score fuses the musical styles of these eras, ranging from gospel to pop rock.

Take a look as Crossing star and 2013 graduate of Overtures: Musical Theater Institute Ines Nassara sings the soulful "Follow the Drinking Gourd" with her costar Nova Y. Payton, and catch a behind-the-scenes look at the world premiere musical.
