Meet the Stars of NYMF: PJ Adzima of THE COBALTEANS

New York Musical Theatre Festival is in full swing and BroadwayWorld has taken the time to sit down with some of the stars of this years NYMF musicals.

Like any great art form, musical theatre is shaped by the events and philosophies of the day. The strength and vitality of musical theatre lie in its ability to stay fresh and relevant. It was with that idea in mind, ten years ago, that the New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) was created - to provide an effective platform to introduce new shows, new perspectives, and new blood into the musical theatre canon.


What's your favorite thing about performing as part of NYMF?

NYMF is a whirlwind. The speed that so many new musicals come to life is remarkable, and I love being a part of that experience. In one night, a single venue can host 3 different new musicals. The amount of talent and energy that goes into that one day is unbelievable, and being a part of that month is incredibly special.

Have you participated in NYMF before? If so, what's your favorite part and what drew you back to the festival?

I'm back after VOLLEYGIRLS in 2013. We won best of fest and several other awards that summer, and it was an amazing time. We really had the dream scenario back then, and I can't imagine being back with anything other than The Cobalteans. I believe this show is incredibly special and exactly what this festival is for, discovering the voices of new and emerging artists, and telling unbelievable stories through the power of music. For me, the dream is stronger than ever.

What other NYMF show are you most intrigued by or excited to see?

It's hard to choose! There's really a lineup this year. I want to see both Headvoice and The Calico Buffalo. Both of them look like they have some great music and a ton of heart. They've definitely caught my eye at the NYMF events.

Tell us about your show/your character?

The Cobalteans is the story of 5 childhood best friends who all grew up together, and now must face the future after losing one of their own. The show looks at how these young men grieve, and what happens when you lose a brother tragically too soon. I play Davey, the youngest of the group, and the little brother of the one who passed. The journey that these men take is an amazing thing to be a part of, and the music in which they relive their past is going to rock your world. I can't wait!
