I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road, with book and lyrics by Gretchen Cryer and musicby Nancy Ford, created a sensation when it premiered in the late 1970s. In it, a former pop star ditches the romantic songs of her past and attempts a comeback by performing personal songs that reflect women's changing roles and attitudes. The show stoked the fires of feminism, not only with its joyous rock score proclaiming empowerment for women, but because of its female songwriting team-a rarity in musical theater then and now.

The cast of I'm Getting My Act Together includes Renée Elise Goldsberry, Jason Rabinowitz, Christina Sajous, Jennifer Sanchez and Frederick Weller, with musicians Damien Bassman, Alec Berlin, George Farmer, and Chris Fenwick.
