In 2019, over 200 musical theater writers applied to the New York Musical Festival for participation in 2020; all those applicants were read and screened by a diverse group of forty readers who chose select finalists to be sent to a small “Grand Jury” of high-profile theater professionals. The experience, knowledge, and aesthetic of the Grand Jury ensured that the top finalists would represent the contemporary zeitgeist of American Musical Theater.
Although NYMF is no more, the work of these musical theater finalists is still breathtakingly new and fresh. Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below in an evening that will include Broadway performers and NYMF alumni singing the songs of these brand new writers including: Timothy Huang, Anessa Marie and Danny Bristoll, Sarah Julius, Naama Shaham and Danielle Koening, November Christine, Deepak Kumar and Jordan Liu, Shelby Rassler and Harley Seger, Matt Chiorini and Travis Newton, Leah Sirkin, Christopher Shorr, Joe Slabe, Jessica Fichter, Karl Amundsen, Irene Molloy, and JJ Warshaw.
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
