The project is a period book musical freely adapted from a popular novel in the public domain. This swashbuckling story contains strong characterizations in a timely serio-comic plot and is designed as a showcase for multi-talented performers. Romance, villainy, stage combat and clowning round out this accessible, mainstream entertainment. Candidates should be skilled in revealing character/extending narrative action through song, and possess a contemporary sensibility, love of language, knowledge of history, passion for musical theatre and ability to collaborate. NYC-based preferred. I am an accomplished librettist and versatile composer who can write in a variety of styles with an individual voice, and my work has been successfully produced in major regional theatres across the U.S. I look forward to hearing from you!
