Photo Flash: Musical Theatre Writers Feted in A LITTLE NEW MUSIC 7 at Rockwell

A LITTLE NEW MUSIC 7 was held on Tuesday, March 10th at Rockwell: Table and Stage in Los Angeles, with Jordan Kai Burnett as host/emcee and Bryan Blaskie as music director.

The fast-paced evening of music featured new works by musical theatre writers including: Brett Macias, Richard Castle & Rosino Serrano, Daniel Maté, Tim Rosser & Charlie Sohne, Andrew Gerle, Sam Salmond, Erik Przytulski, Amanda Yesnowitz & Doug Katsaros, and Zoe Sarnak. For our guest writer, we welcomed the multi-hyphenate artist Brett Ryback (actor in MURDER FOR TWO off B'way) to premiere brand-new material.

Adding to the evening were a special performance from current hit production SERRANO: the Musical (through March 29 at the Matrix Theatre) and a sneak preview of the upcoming RECORDED IN HOLLYWOOD (opening April 11 at the Lillian Theatre).
