Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program alums Rebekah Melocik & Jacob Yandura (both Cycle 20) will have their Broadway debut with their new musical HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO.

Based on the award-winning HBO documentary, HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO is a heart-filled new musical exploring the need to connect and the courage it takes to step out into the world. At a group counseling center in Columbus, Ohio, seven autistic young adults prepare for a spring formal dance—a rite of passage that breaks open their routines and sets off hilarious and heartbreaking encounters with love, stress, excitement, and independence. HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO is a story about people standing on the cusp of the next phase of their lives, facing their hopes and fears, ready to make a very big first move…and dance.

The Broadway show will begin previews on November 15th at the Belasco Theatre.
