New Musical: Oceanborn! By Morgan Smith & Mhairi Cameron
July 6, 2018
Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for a thrilling evening featuring the songs of Oceanborn, performed in concert by the writers. Oceanborn was created through the collaboration of two teenage women, a composer and playwright, writing of the mythic female heroes of ages past. The youngest duo on the New York Theatre scene, Cameron & Smith’s work has been lauded as “revelatory” and “the future of Broadway.”
Oceanborn follows two young women as they face the pressures and expectations of future leadership in a climate of violence and uncertainty. Acerbic wit balanced with heartrending poignancy, this musical tackles the cyclic nature of violence and xenophobia head on. Mhairi Cameron, composer and head lyricist, has won national awards in poetry and has worked professionally in television and film. Morgan Smith, bookwriter and co-lyricist, is a novelist and playwright whose writings have been published in the US and internationally, and recognized at the Yale and Kenyon Writer’s Conferences. In an unforgettable premiere of the new Cameron & Smith musical, experience a debut sung-through concert of the show that has already garnered an avid fanbase!
Morgan and Mhairi will be joined by their sister Hannah Cameron in this performance of Oceanborn.
