For two weeks, New Dramatists turns over the entire building to the Composer-Librettist Studio intensive. Beginning at 1pm, you are invited to hear the 25 new musical pieces generated over the course of the studio.

Facilitated by Ben Krywosz of Nautilus Music-Theater and Music Director Roger Ames, this nearly round-the-clock intensive sparks early-stage collaborations. Participating New Dramatists playwrights work in rotation with composers from a variety of musical and stylistic backgrounds and an ensemble of performers to develop overnight responses to a range of songwriting assignments.
