New Musicals by Oliver and Guenther presented on The Apprentice 10/28

New musicals Darling (Music and Lyrics by Ryan Scott Oliver, Book by B.T. Ryback) and Little Miss Fix-It (Lyrics and Book by Kirsten Guenther, Music by Joy Son) will be featured on NBC's The Apprentice October 28.

Alex Brightman, Lindsay Mendez, Jay Armstrong Johnson, Lindsay Northen, Alena Watters, and Nick Blaemire will sing the material from Darling, with music direction by Rich Silverstein.

Darling is a dark deconstruction of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, set in Boston, 1929. 16-year-old Ursula lives a lonely childhood, neglected by parents who care more for money and mixers than for her. But one night, Peter-a rent-boy on the run from police-crawls in through her window and steals her away from her life... and into his. Ursula is swept into an underground world (called "The Warehouse") where she encounters debauched young boys-for-hire ("Lost Boys"), scandalous women (the notorious Madame Stella, the lesbian burlesque dancer Lily), and a corrupt law force intent on destroying them all. Soon, Ursula finds herself stuck between two choices: Grow up-or be lost forever. The musical was a recipient of a 2009 Pace New Musicals workshop production.

Sam Tedaldi, Preston Sadleir, Farah Alvin, Stephen Bogardus, Jason Michael Snow, and Haviland Stillwell will perform selections from Little Miss Fix-It, with music direction by Steven Jamail.

Little Miss Fix It tells the story of Nan, a gloriously precocious and imaginative 11-year-old free spirit who drinks black coffee for breakfast, and tries to bend spoons with her mind. The one thing Nan fears most: disorder. With her parent's marriage crumbling, Nan dedicates herself to "fixing" her friends problems. When Nan meets David, a 12 year-old Impressionist in the park, she is even more overwhelmed by the highly unorganized feelings that come with first love. As she tries to save her parent's marriage and the problems of everyone around her, Nan embarks on a hilarious and heartwarming journey, discovering that you can't always control what happens in life; but that sometimes great things happen when you let go, simply trust your instincts, and take a step not knowing where you're going to land. The show was conceived at NYU's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, and through a grant from The Collaborative Arts Project in New York. Eli Gonda is attached to direct.

Watch the episode live on NBC at 10pm (9pm central) on Oct. 28, or afterward at

The tenth season of The Apprentice returns the show to its original (non-celebrity) format. The conceit of the season features sixteen competitors who suffered during the recent recession, who now vie for a six-figure executive position working for Donald Trump, host and Executive Producer of The Apprentice.
