York Theatre Company Presents NEO 2019: A CONCERT CELEBRATION
The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director; Evans Haile, Executive Director), dedicated to the development of new musicals and rediscovery of musical gems from the past, presents the 2019 installment of the celebrated concert series NEO, featuring works by new/emerging/outstanding musical theatre writers Amanda D'Archangelis & Sami Horneff, Julian Hornik, Janine McGuire & Arri Lawton Simon, and Madeline Myers.
In addition to these six writers, this year's NEO of the Future program will showcase two songs by writers who are currently undergraduate students: Sarah Kaufman, a senior at CAP21/Molloy College, and Caleb Smith, a junior at Penn State.
The one-night-only benefit performance of NEO 2019: A Concert Celebration of Emerging Musical Theatre Writers, directed by Annette Jolles, is set for Monday evening, March 4, 2019 at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (619 Lexington Avenue, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
Festivities are set to begin at 7:00 p.m. followed by a champagne/dessert reception. An exciting lineup of performers will be announced shortly.
NEO (an acronym for "New, Emerging, Outstanding") celebrates songwriters primed to pen the next generation of musicals. Since the first NEO concert in 2003-recorded by England's JAY Records-musical theatre fans and York supporters eagerly anticipate each incarnation. Since 2012, each season's NEO program has focused on a smaller group of writers, presenting multiple songs by each in a kickoff concert, followed by a series of fully-funded readings of works in progress.
