Rhinebeck Writers Retreat will present 9 songs from 9 new musicals at Songs of our Summer, their annual fundraiser live-streamed on November 12, 2020 at 7:30pm EST. Broadway artists participating include George Salazar (BE MORE CHILL, GODSPELL), Taylor Trensch (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, DEAR EVAN HANSEN), Kay Trinidad (HADESTOWN, THE LITTLE MERMAID), Pearl Sun (COME FROM AWAY, IF/THEN), and Azudi Onyejekwe (THE GREAT COMET), Grace McLean, more. The evening will be hosted by Jenn Colella, Tony-nominee and Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk award winner for her performance as Captain Bass in COME FROM AWAY. Jenn will be live with 16 musical theatre writers who developed 9 new musicals last summer in “virtual residencies,” including 2020 Lucille Lortel winner Grace McLean, Broadway’s Adam Chanler-Berat, and Jonathan Larson Grant winner Andrew R. Butler.
To register, pay what you want, starting at only $25. The proceeds will support musical theatre writers’ residencies in 2021. Executive Director Kathy Evans said “In 2020, we decided we had to keep going, even when theater was shut down. I can’t wait to share the amazing work these musical theatre writers did last summer.”
