We're heading to Off-Broadway!
Good Morning New York: A New Musical ended it's summer run Aug 2018 -- but we're not done.
Making a long-running, successful show takes time, hard work and resources. Our summer run was planned to be a limited engagement to see how audiences reacted.
THEY LOVED IT!
We quickly realized we had a hit -- but didn't have the resources to sustain it long-term. A large chunk of the musical (rehearsal space, festival fees, props, scripts, cast & crew paychecks) was self-funded by Jacklyn Thrapp (me). Everything else was done on borrowed time ... with a skeleton set ... borrowed costumes ... and a free performance space for five weeks. That is SO RARE and we are extremely grateful to the People's Improv Theater and New York Theater Festival for the opportunity.
It was clear this show has the potential to thrive on an Off-Broadway stage so that's why ...
WE'RE HEADING TO OFF-BROADWAY!
We quickly realized that Good Morning New York: A New Musical is a hit -- so now we're moving forward with plans for a REAL set, REAL costumes & resources to make an enjoyable theatrical experience for the both our team and the audiences.
KGM Theatrical General Management has agreed to write up a budget for us.
Expect to see more of us soon.
... oh did I mention an album is coming? Maybe I'll save that for the next blog.
