BWW TV: NYMF presents - Twilight in Manchego

TWILIGHT IN MANCHEGO maps the story of Esau Munsey, who leaves a haunted past in the city to teach fourth grade in a provincial elementary school. But his intentions to provoke change in an outdated education system distract him from the students he really wants to inspire. When Esau's history repeats itself and the small town of Manchego is struck by tragedy, Esau must finally put to rest the ghosts of his past and make peace with himself and his choices.

In this segment, writer/composer Matt Gould, in all his dramtically inspired glory, elicits the help of his young producers and brilliant cast to get the word out about Twilight in Manchego. From the bus drivers along 42nd street to the theatre queens at Mostly Sondheim, they are on a quest to spread the gospel of Manchego and to build a community for this special show!
