“I believe it is the responsibility of the regional theater to not only speak to audiences today, but to contribute to the dramatic canon of tomorrow. With NEXT 20/20, Theater Latté Da will invest in the future of the great American Musical and its playwrights, composers and lyricists. It is the right time in our evolution to expand our artistic reach and to contribute to the future of the American Musical Theater.” -Peter Rothstein
NEXT 2020 is a five year endeavor aimed at developing 20 new musicals or plays-with-music and shepherding many of them to full production.
We truly cannot achieve this ambitious goal without the help of our community. We believe passionately in the future of musical theater, and know that you do too. Help us set the stage for the next generation of great musical theater writers and composers so that we might continue to capture the hearts and minds of audiences for generations to come. Consider a making gift to NEXT 20/20 and invest the future of American Musical Theater and the dynamic vision of Artistic Director Peter Rothstein.
As part of the initiative, Theater Latté Da’s 2015-16 season will feature two world premieres. LULLABY (Michael Elyanow’s compelling play-with-music) and C. (Bradley Greenwald and Robert Elhai’s new musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s great play Cyrano de Bergerac).
