TIN PAN ALLEY 2 Concert Series To Return With Three More Musical Theatre Writers

Tin Pan Alley 2, a free concert series featuring new musical theatre works, will feature a panel of emerging writers on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 7:30pm. The November 2020 edition will be showcasing new works by three writers Tristen Moseley, Gabrielle Mirabella, and Stephen Wagener Bennett, and hosted by Durra Leung and Sam Rosenblatt. The streaming is free, and will stay online permanently. For more information and to RSVP, go to Tin Pan Alley2's website.

The idea of Tin Pan Alley 2 is from the legendary birthplace of numerous American Standards in the early 20th century. The concert series' mission is to provide a platform for emerging musical theatre writers, and free entertainment for the audience. The last concert in September 2020 aimed to amplify female writers' voices, and in July 2020 it featured LGBTQIA+ writers and content. The curators and hosts Durra Leung and Sam Rosenblatt recently shared their vision of Tin Pan Alley 2 in an exclusive interview with BroadwayWorld.

The November 2020 lineup will feature a diverse roster of talents from Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program (GMTWP) at New York University, a community of collaborators engaged in the ever-evolving process of creating new musical theatre. All three featured emerging writers (Tristen Moseley, Gabrielle Mirabella, and Stephen Wagener Bennett) will be presenting their works mostly incubated in the GMTWP program. Their collaborators for the songs in this concert include Erin Hoerchler, Kathy Ng, Judy Yin, Enzo Veiga, Ernie Bird, Maggie Sharp Tallan, and Sam Rosenblatt. Guest performers are Erika Ji, Kathy Ng, Heather Buck, Enzo Veiga, Andrew Strano, Vanessa Sierra, Niki Badua, Tabor Reed, Risdon Reed, Nicole Tsarouhas, Nate Riebli, Claire Saunders, Tatiana Wechsler, and Ali Regan.
