If Music be the Food of Love, Play On!

January has become a special month for PlayGround—a month of music!  Continuing a tradition started last January, all the plays written for this month’s Monday Night PlayGround on January 24 will be musicals.  Our writers are partnering up with two Bay Area composers, Christopher Winslow and Richard “Scrumbly” Koldewyn, to compose original music for their 10-minute pieces.  Each piece will feature at least one song, with lyrics by the writer and music by the composers, who will perform their compositions live during the show.  The show is brought to you in part by TheatreWorks’ New Works Initiative, which has been developing new plays and musicals since 2000.  Meredith McDonough, Director of New Works at TheatreWorks, will be on the panel for the pre-show discussion at 7:10 pm.  To top off the evening, our excerpt for the month will be from Geetha Reddy’s latest commission, Book Club! The Musical.
