Program alums feature new musical in NY Theatre Barn Choreography Lab

Wednesday, Sep 21, 2022

Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program alums Laurie Hochman and Bryan Blaskie (both Cycle 27) had their new musical NOTHING TO SEE HERE featured in NY Theatre Barn's Choreography Lab in Sept. 2022. The Choreography Lab is the only platform for choreographers and writers to collaborate on movement for new musicals during incubation and was created to elevate and expand the use of dance in musical theatre. 

The in-person presentation was also streamed live from Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City. Choreographer James Kinney (Fosse) was the lab's guest moderator.

NOTHING TO SEE HERE (book & music by Blaskie and book & lyrics by Hochman) is set in Dayton, Tennessee in 1925 and explores the first major anti-Evolution court case: the Scopes Monkey Trial.
