A BEAT IN JUNE Starring Tamar Greene and Alita Moses Positions Itself to be First Virtual Reality Musical

Little y and Young Lion Audio unveiled their innovative project at the American Film Market on Tuesday.

With the onset of COVID-19 the creators of A Beat in June, Mischa Ipp and Daniel Rufolo, dreamed of finding a way to keep theatre alive through the medium of virtual reality. The two writers are currently in meetings with investors to produce this project in 2021.

Starring Broadway's Tamar Greene (George Washington, Hamilton) and award-winning vocalist Alita Moses, and working alongside VR expert Daniel Tenenbaum, Ipp and Rufolo produced a VR music video called Brak is a Sensitive Caveman, one of the songs from the musical they've been writing for three years. To be released in late November.

About A Beat in June:

Two stories intertwine as a teenage cave-woman and her grandmother fight over teaching men the new emotion they've invented (love) and a master author confronts why she is hallucinating.

A Beat in June is a dreamlike herstory musical. Their master author, June, is offered the greatest writing opportunity of her life but worries she is going insane when the characters in her novel start to come to life around her. Unfortunately this 'great' opportunity comes with a catch: after 40 rejections, in a fit of frustration, June's agent submits the novel under her husband's name and it is only then that it is picked up.

Everything transforms when the characters from June's novel burst on stage singing and dancing around her. We meet a 16-year-old cave woman, Su, who is part of the first tribe to have invented the concept of love. Su's grandmother - a spunky-cave-woman-lesbian named Rise, believes love is exclusive to women but Su is certain that she can teach love to men. The musical moves forward and the two worlds become more intertwined as questions and secrets reveal themselves.
