09-12-2017 12:00:00 09-12-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York The Women Who Compose for Broadway- A Musical Entertainment The Women Who Compose for Broadway Debuts at The Triad Theatre (NYC, NY). "The Women Who Compose for Broadway – A Musical Entertainment" featuring the music of Nell Benjamin, Nancy Ford, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers, Brenda Russell, Lucy Simon, Kay Swift, Jeanine Tesori, and more, will perform for one special performance December 9, 2017, 4pm at the Triad Theatre. Over the course of the last century little recognition has been given to the women who compose Broadway scores. There are strikingly fewer female musical theatre composers due to the barriers they have faced. Marjorie Hayes, creator of the event, was inspired by their stories and decided to shine a light on these ground-breaking women who have made their mark on the Broadway stage. By using only these women’s songs, with a bit of historical context, the show celebrates the depth, breadth, and wit of their heart-stopping music. The musical evening features Broadway and regional favorites, Brandi Chavonne Massey (Wicked, The Lion King, The Color Purple, Jekyll and Hyde, Caroline or Change), Rachel Zatcoff (The Phantom of the Opera), Peter Kendall Clark (New York City Opera), Marc delaCruz (If/Then), Marjorie Hayes (Casa Manana), and Madelyn Claire Lego (Southern Colorado Rep Theatre). Music direction by Kristen Lee Rosenfeld (Spring Awakening 1st national tour, Friends! The musical parody). "The Women Who Compose for Broadway" is conceived by Marjorie Hayes, award winning actor and director, former U.S. Senior Fulbright-Hays Scholar, Artslink Grant recipient and current Fellow of the Institute for the Advancement for the Arts. This production is partially funded by the University of North Texas IAA.
