Tony winner Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza) directs, with music direction by Benji Goldsmith.
The Costume, with words and music by Daniel Zaitchik. Newcomer Finn Douglas (School of Rock) stars in this musical that finds 10-year-old Leo on Halloween in 1954 given the unexpected task of caring for an injured bird overnight.
Window Treatment, with words by Deborah Zoe Laufer and music by Daniel Green. Broadway's Farah Alvin (It Shoulda Been You) stars in this musical that finds a lonely New Yorker planning her future with a stranger across the courtyard.
