BroadwayWorld.com Announces Newest Exclusive TV Series - CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER - Shining a Spotlight on Up-and-Coming Writers
BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre web site on the net, is thrilled to announce the latest addition to its unmatched line-up of exclusive, engaging TV programs. Launching today, CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER is a newly minted weekly series showcasing the up and coming 'next generation' of Broadway songwriters. Each episode will delight audiences with great songs from upcoming musicals performed by distinguished stars, enlightening interviews, and fresh perspectives from tomorrow's marquee talent.
CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER will join such popular BroadwayWorld TV offerings as BACKSTAGE WITH Richard Ridge, OUTSIDE THE BOX with Bruce Kimmel, CHEWING THE SCENERY WITH Randy Rainbow and season two of the hit series SUBMISSIONS ONLY, which earned a spot on Entertainment Weekly's MUST LIST, and hailed as "Brilliant" by New York Magazine.
"Since day one, we've strived to be big supporters of the NEXT generation" said Editor-in-Chief Robert Diamond, "and the series, founded by seasoned theatre vets Laura Pietropinto and Josh Young, presented with new co-producer Jillian Robbins, is by far the BEST showcase that we've seen for just that - bar none."
"When we started this series back in 2009, we wanted to create a community in which up-and-coming musical theatre writers could have their work showcased by established performers. We knew it was important to provide exposure for our songwriters not only in concert, but on YouTube as well," said producer/director Laura Pietropinto. "Now, we are thrilled to expose them to an even larger dedicated audience of theatre fans worldwide via BroadwayWorld.com. We are looking forward to expanding our series by combining our concert videos with in-studio performances, composer interviews, new musical sneak peeks, and other surprise content. More than a concert series, Cutting-Edge Composers strives to build a platform for writers who have not yet been produced on Broadway."
Cutting-Edge Composers is a concert series that creates greater exposure for up-and-coming songwriters by providing them with the Broadway performers, musicians and orchestrations, publicity and venues to best showcase their material. After sold-out shows at the Laurie Beechman, the Canal Room, NYMF 2012 and Joe's Pub, Cutting-Edge Composers will now showcase their concert videos exclusively on Broadwayworld.com. Cutting-Edge Composers was co-founded by Director/Producer Laura Pietropinto and Josh Young, and and is co-produced by Jillian Robbins, with Music Direction by Julie McBride and Virginia Hart Pike. Stay tuned for original music by all of your favorite Cutting-Edge Composers sung by Broadway's hottest performers!
