Produced and created by award-winning composer/writer Bobby Cronin, INSPIRED invites you into the minds and hearts of some of today's exciting musical theatre writers in a casual and intimate setting as they sit behind the piano and, unlike traditional concerts of their material, perform songs by other writers that have inspired their work.
