Over the course of the last century, little recognition has been given to the women who compose Broadway scores. The Women Who Compose for Broadway features the music of Nell Benjamin, Nancy Ford, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers, Brenda Russell, Lucy Simon, Kay Swift, Jeanine Tesori, and others, and celebrates the depth, breadth, and wit of their heart-stopping music.
The musical event features Broadway and regional favorites, Brandi Chavonne Massey (Wicked, The Lion King, The Color Purple, Jekyll and Hyde, Caroline, or Change), Rachel Zatcoff (The Phantom of the Opera), Peter Kendall Clark (New York City Opera), Marc delaCruz (If/Then), Marjorie Hayes (Casa Manana), and Madelyn Claire Lego (Southern Colorado Rep Theatre). The music direction is by Kristen Lee Rosenfeld (Spring Awakening first national tour, Friends! The Musical Parody). The show is conceived by Marjorie Hayes.
