What a fun way to release an album! It makes this new musical hugely accessible, we got to include captions, we amplified comments from the audience, we got to watch the talent jam out ‘backstage’ between live moments, it was awesome from start to finish.

It is a JOY to be working on this show. It hits me deeply every time and I am incredibly grateful to be along for the ride. I am lucky enough to also be stage managing this show as we continue the process of getting it on its feet. Every time the music plays, I am blown away by the beauty. This event was cutting-edge, accessible, and inclusive. Truly, I could not have asked for more.
