A handful of this year's 12 productions give us a behind-the-scenes sneak peek.

The 15th annual New York Musical Festival, running July 9-August 5, is presenting New York audiences with developmental productions of 12 brand-new musicals. You're encouraged to see them all, but if you'd like some help paring down your selections, take a look inside the rehearsal room of a few of this year's offerings. From a heartwarming trip inside an smartphone in Emojiland to the timely story of a young Cuban refuge in Pedro Pan, the festival has something for everyone.
