The theatrical format of choice this summer locally will be concert versions of musicals, both brand new and classic. This month, The Theatre at Arts Garage presents a series of one-night readings of shows by young, emerging composers and lyricists, while Palm Beach Dramaworks leans toward the familiar with two two-week runs of concert musicals in July and August.
Thanks to his connection to New York’s National Alliance for Musical Theater, Arts Garage’s Louis Tyrrell has access to relatively untested musicals that may land a full production in a future season of his Delray Beach company. As he puts it, “There is a generation of writers today who are redefining American musical theater, and we should have the opportunity to see and hear what they’re creating.”
