THE PARTS I KEEP INSIDE: A NEW MUSICAL to be Presented at the Triad Theater

Rye Entertainment and JES Theatrical will present The Parts I Keep Inside: A New Musical on Saturday July 9th and Monday July 11th, 2022 at 7:00pm at THE TRIAD THEATER. The Parts I Keep Inside is a new musical by award-winning composer/lyricist Jeffrey Schmelkin (Untitled Time: A New Musical, What's Wrong With The World?) that delves deep into the many intertwining storylines that make up each facet of the human mind and soul.

The self-aware show follows four storylines that make up the inner workings of the onstage music director aided by the songs of the onstage composer. These four characters eventually complete their arcs in their individual journeys to greater purpose as the music director attempts to find inner peace of their own.

The Parts I Keep Inside fosters the space for any audience to laugh, cry, and reflect on their own lives with the gentle comfort knowing that they don't have to go it alone. Last summer, the song cycle version of The Parts I Keep Inside played a sold-out performance at the Triad Theater-one of the first live performances in New York since the shutdown. Since then, the work has been developed into a full 90 minute musical which eagerly awaits its presentation this summer!

The Production Team includes Patrick B. Phillips who serves as Music Supervisor and Bobby Weil who serves as Music Director. The full cast list will be announced soon! This is a musical performance that you will not want to miss!

The Parts I Keep Inside will be performed at The Triad Theater (158 West 72nd Street) on July 9th and 11th, 2022 at 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are $40 with a two drink minimum and can be purchased by visiting

The general public can also help support this brand new musical by donating to the show's GoFundMe campaign! The funds donated through this GoFundMe campaign will help to offset production costs including rehearsal spaces, cast and band payments, marketing and advertising fees, tech fees, and more. No amount is too small and of course no amount too big. As a perk, if you donate $50 or more, your name (should you choose to disclose) will be mentioned in the program! Visit to donate today!
