Writing Retreat at Two Rivers
Gordon and I got to spend a lovely week at Two Rivers Theatre in Red Bank, NJ working on our new musical The Magnificent Seven, which is about the 1996 women's Olympic gymnastics team. Are we excited to write some songs inspired by our favorite 90s rockers? Why, yes! Will we represent gymnastics on stage with elaborate puppetry? Who knows! Will Kerri Strug stick the landing? It would be pretty historically inaccurate if she did not. We're so grateful to Sarah Schlessinger and the kind folks at Two Rivers for giving us such a beautiful environment to get some new work done in.
