Featuring a cast of Broadway all-stars, this concert brings together a collection of eclectic, verbally dexterous, and passionate songs from a roster of new musicals by lyricist Eric Price, who also served as 21-time Tony® Award winner Hal Prince’s longtime assistant.
With shows that musicalize the romance that led to the discovery of radium (Radioactive), the inner workings of a family of stage magicians (Presto Change-o), and the ambitious teenagers who committed online securities fraud in the earliest days of the internet (Hello Out There), audiences can expect to encounter songs that dazzle and surprise, along with stories of collaboration, dream jobs, and real life magic. Music by Will Reynolds, Joel Waggoner, and Frank Terry.
