This installment will be moderated by Broadway legend Hal Luftig, the current producer of "EVITA." You will see how these young musical theater composers are pushing boundaries by drawing musical inspiration from a wide variety of sources. What genres of music are fair game for the stage? How does using "non-traditional" music affect the format of a story? How can new music push our understanding of what musical theater can be? Behind the Music-al is an exciting behind-the-scenes look at the next generation of musical theater composers. Learn how songwriting teams collaborate, hear exclusive new songs performed by some of Broadway's hottest young stars and get the back-story on your favorite musical numbers. With a cross-section of three dynamic musical theater writing teams, Behind the Music-al lets you in on the process of putting together tomorrow's next big hit. This event features Tony Award-winner Hal Luftig, Chris Miller & Nathan Tysen (Burnt Part Boys), Brendan Milburn & Valerie Vigoda (GrooveLily, Striking 12) and Kyle Ewalt & Michael I Walker (Bromance: The Dudesical) as they go out of bounds to explore the new frontier of the musical theater landscape.
