Ashley Road Productions presents the New York premiere of A Woman of Will, a new musical starring Golden Globe Award-winning writer and performer Amanda McBroom ("The Rose"). The show features lyrics by Amanda McBroom and music by Joel Silberman, a book by Ms. McBroom and Mr. Silberman, and is directed by Mr. Silberman. A Woman of Will is the musical adventure of a writer in crisis - both personal and professional. Hired to finish the lyrics of a Broadway-bound musical version of The Merchant of Venice, Kate faces the demands of an unrelenting deadline in addition to important decisions about her marriage and future. In desperation, she reaches out to Shakespeare's leading ladies for guidance. What follows is a celebration of life in a crackling display of wit and wisdom, bursting forth from 17 original songs.
