This weekend, I got to sing "At Night He Swims Home to Me" from JAWS: The Musical by Wayne Henry.
This was a presentation for the Dramatists Guild in which writers met and discussed their work, looking to grow. It was such a cool experience and reminded me of some of the BMI presentations I've done over the years. It's always cool to be part of something like that, to sing for a composer I adore, to share his or her work with others, and to hear what other writers are working on. There are a lot of cool ideas out there, and it'll be interesting to see if these musicals get on their feet.
I think that's one of the most interesting parts of being involved in a musical in development. It takes years for a show to grow.
