In July 2010, Signature Theatre continued its dedication to supporting new voices in the theater by awarding special Next Generation "honoree grants" to composers Joshua Schmidt (Adding Machine, A Minister's Wife) and Joshua Rosenblum (Einstein's Dreams, Fermat's Last Tango) to develop new works for the theatre - and on December 4th at 8:00pm, both Mr. Schmidt and Mr. Rosenblum will be sharing selections from projects they are currently working on from their commissions. Joshua Schmidt will present songs from Portraits (a stand-alone series of songs written with Jan Tranen), as well as songs from his project entitled Stockholm (with librettist Royce Vovrek). Joshua Rosenblum will present songs from his new musical The Haunted Hotel (with lyrics by Joanne Sydney Lessner and Mr. Rosenblum). Musical direction is by Zak Sandler.

"As a continuation of our steadfast commitment to the development of new musical theater works, we are extremely proud to present this very special showcase" said Signature's Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer. "Joshua Schmidt and Joshua Rosenblum are two accomplished, talented composers and we look forward to hearing their newest works."

An impressive array of singers will be performing to the songs of Mr. Schmidt and Mr. Rosenblum, including Will Gartshore (Show Boat, Urinetown at Signature), Lauren Worsham (Candide at New York City Opera and Where's Charley at NY City Center Encores!), Susan Derry (Sunset Boulevard, Show Boat at Signature), Natascia Diaz (Signature's Kiss of the Spider Woman), Sam Ludwig (The Hollow, [title of show] at Signature), Brian Cali (Broadway's Master Class), Bayla Whitten (Chess, Merrily We Roll Along at Signature), Tim Rogan and Paul Scanlan.

Tickets are $20 for the general public and free for ‘Friend of Signature' donors of $120 or more. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster (703/573-SEAT) or at the Signature Box Office (703/820-9771).
