Be the first to hear their fresh music, ranging from heart-break ballads to your new favorite bop. These young composers met at Stagedoor Manor theatre camp, at the age of 15, and went on to major in musical theatre at The University of Michigan (Stein) and Ithaca College (Silver). They recently premiered Your Favorite Actor Friends at The Green Room 42 and Welcome to Ridgington at Signature Theatre's Soundbites Festival to great acclaim. You can expect to hear songs from Actor Friends such as "It's Exhausting Pretending Not to Hate You," and from their musical in development, Mr. Manhattan, about the arising Culture Clash in "Way Way Uptown, U.S.A."
