About this show

Raw Impressions, Inc. in association with PenneySeal Productions presents Dreams This Way: The Best of Raw Impressions Music Theatre. Daniella Topol directs. Raw Impressions Music Theatre (RIMT) provides a unique opportunity for writers and composers to create new music theatre pieces. For each of the 15 events RIMT has produced, eight composers and eight lyricists who have never worked together are paired and given an assignment, a few actors and 48 hours to turn in a first draft on a new 10-minute musical. All eight new pieces are then performed at La MaMa ETC 10 days after that very first meeting. Over the course of the past two years, RIMT has created 124 new 10-minute musicals and engaged more than 400 artists from New York and Los Angeles. The program is comprised of eight of the best pieces created in RIMT, including: Things Happen Writer: Maryrose Wood, Composer: Curtis Moore Be My Spirit Guru Writer: Dan O'Brien, Composer: Andrew Gerle Wallflowers Writer: Timothy J. Mathis, Composer: Michael Moricz My Gay Best Friend Writer: DJ Javerbaum, Composer: Jenny Giering Goodbye, Dolly Writer: R.N.
