New Mott Musical THE FAIRY'S TALE to Hold Reading Presented by Latinè Musical Theatre Lab

"The Fairy's Tale" is a new original musical inspired by the true story "A Love Not Meant For Me" by Aryana Rose, with music and lyrics by Michael Mott ("In The Light, A Faustian Tale") and book by Gretchen Suárez-Peña ("Melina: A Steampunk Musical Tragedy"). Aryana Rose's story went viral on YouTube after she shared her experience at The Moth Theatre. The Latinè Musical Theatre Lab will host a closed industry reading this weekend featuring Yasmin Allers, Pasquale Crociata, Sarah Hamaty and Lindsay Maron.

Mott saw the video in 2017 and was inspired. With Aryana's consent and blessing, he began working on the piece and later brought on book writer, Suárez-Peña.

"The Fairy's Tale" tells the story of a Puerto Rican woman working in France and her passionate love affair with an Italian man, many years her junior. The musical celebrates the complexities of love and relationships, and acknowledges the time to move forward through the selfless act of letting go.
