Our Musical Writers Lab is a community of writing teams who meet bi-weekly to work on the development of new musicals through Lab presentations, sharing their process and offering support. Lab members benefit additionally from Theatre Now services including developmental productions, publishing and licensing. This is a highly skilled, active, and collaborative group focused on embracing and fostering the diversity of musical theatre styles, forms, and creators.
There is both a National and a Local NY Lab chapter. The National group sessions are hosted online via Zoom every 2 Sundays with members from all over the states, while the Local NY group sessions are hosted in-person at ART/NY studios the remaining Sundays of the month. We value community and are aware that building a safe network is important in our creative field, which is why both groups are welcome to sit in on one another's meetings and interact closely with one another.
We are not currently accepting applications for new Lab members. To be notified when submissions are open, please join our mailing list. In the meantime, if you have a 10-minute musical, please submit it for our SOUND BITES Festival here.
