Additional Info

ReWrite, a musical comedy triple feature is comprised of three wild musicals that connect in surprising and dangerous ways. Nelson Rocks! is a pop/rock show about a young dude who needs to fix his life before the 'You better get to class' bell rings. Populated by adolescents, the show throbs and pulses along a locker-filled hallway, barreling towards its inevitable showdown. Miss Marzipan is a dizzy musical about the life changing preparation that goes into a high stakes dinner party. In this heightened look at the suburban experience, a little bit of blood is spilt, but nothing that some kitchen towels can't clean up. The Process deals with a writer. With a deadline. As the Dunkin Donuts fills with the voices in his head, the writer must conquer his writer's block and finish his musical. The Dunkin Donuts counter lady acts as our guide through this passionate look into one man's writing process.
