In the words of Andrew Lloyd Webber, “Cats on paper was the worst idea conceivable.”
Now that the most unlikely hit musical in history is back on Broadway, Encores! Unscripted will explore how the worst ideas sometimes evolve into commercial and critical triumphs.
Composer Michael Friedman — who has written musicals about everything from Andrew Jackson to the porn industry — will host this exploration of the mystical art of transposing poems, cartoons, and novels onto the stage. Joining the conversation will be composer Michael John LaChiusa, director/dramaturg/writer Rachel Chavkin, and composer/musical director Dave Malloy.Buy tickets/get more info now
