NYMF begins its new season of what’s up and coming and new in theater. Take a peek and be sure and score some tickets while you can!
Theater Pizzazz’ Miriam Spritzer was on the scene at the press conference for NYMF (New York Musical Festival). It was definitely something to see. With a collection of numbers from each show and short interviews with creative team and cast members, it gave a little taste of how much fun this season will be.
The event was hosted by Tony Award winner Lena Hall, also a NYMF alumnus, who was very gracious and explained how important the festival is to develop new talents, as well as explore different possibilities within musical theater. It is a great platform to create and exchange ideas with others in the industry with a high energy atmosphere making possible the festival’s mission of keeping the theater fresh and relevant.
The scenes presented were mainly comedy, with a couple of dramatic shows, bringing different styles of music from country, pop, to traditional musical theater. And of course, quite interesting points of view when it comes to storytelling. And the casts were composed of incredible talent, including some renowned actors from the Great White Way, such as J Robert Spencer, Robin de Jesus, Kevin Spirtas, Lynne Winterstellar, Brenda Braxton and Stephanie D’Abruzzo, including country songwriter JT Harding.
