On Tuesday Sep 18, we’re doing a free outdoor concert at TSQ MKT (between 42nd/43rd and Broadway) in the heart of Times Square. Molly Hager will do a set from 5-6, and then we’ll be on 6-7. The concert will feature Emily Schultheis, Aaron Galligan-Stierle, Christina Maxwell, John Battagliese, Nat Zegree, David Brumfield, Zoe Jensen, Josh Walker, and introducing Janelle Good. It’s free, so no need to purchase tickets; just come on by!
We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the ISLAND SONG studio cast album, which we released last fall, and thrilled by all the productions that groups have been mounting around the world! 3 groups have already produced ISLAND SONG in New York City this year, including the Circle in the Square Theatre School and Smallest One Productions. Three productions have already taken place in England. Other productions have happened or are contracted for later this year in Bologna, Tokyo, Singapore, Ontario, and at dozens of colleges, high schools, and theatre companies around the US.
If you’re interested in bringing ISLAND SONG to your community, we hope you’ll check out the page on this site at www.IslandSongMusical.com for more information, production stills, and a free copy of the album–and email us on our CONTACT PAGE to let us know about what you’d like to do and how we can help!
ISLAND SONG has a flexible cast size from 5-19+, no physical production requirements, a flexible band size, and is available in more family-friendly high school editions. Plus, by making the materials available digitally, we can keep licensing and materials costs low. We hope you’ll reach out and say hello!
This July, material of ours will be featured in exciting group concerts on both coasts: A Little New Music’sEvening of New Musical Theatre Songs on July 19 at 7pm in Beverly Hills at the Wallis Annenberg Center’s Sorting Room (9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd.) and Prospect Theater Company’s Rave Revue on July 27 at 8pm at New York’s TimesCenter (242 W. 41st St.). Each concert will feature new work by exciting contemporary musical theatre writers, and we’re honored to be included!
We built ISLAND SONG piece by piece, in dialogue with singers buying the sheet music and performing the songs in their own hometowns, folks around the world watching videos of the songs on Youtube, friends in New York sharing crazy and intense experiences that eventually got turned into songs, and more. In recognition of the truly communal effort it took to create ISLAND SONG, we’re releasing all 83 minutes of the recording FREE OF CHARGE. We hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed making it.
