THE GREATEST MUSICAL NEVER WRITTEN
Created and directed by Alan Kliffer
Music direction by Mark Sonnenblick
Two industry workshops for The Greatest Musical Never Written were held on Monday, June 17 at 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM at the new Birdland Theater (315 West 44th Street New York, NY). The workshops were presented by Aged In Wood Productions (Tony Award-winners Robyn Goodman and Josh Fiedler, whose combined credits include Avenue Q, In The Heights, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella and Angels in America), Brian and Dayna Lee (Tony Award-winners for Angels in America), Kliffer Entertainment (Evangeline), Merrie L. Davis of Next Act 2 Follow (Olivier Award-winner for Company), in association with Nicole Kramer.
Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Outstanding Production at the 2016 Dora Awards in Toronto, The Greatest Musical Never Written is the first fully improvised two-act musical experience where everything is possible! With nothing more than audience suggestions, our cast and musicians create a two-act musical with a complete plot, characters, costumes, music, and lyrics: all made up on the spot and completely unique to every performance. It’s opening night...Every night!
An earlier version of The Greatest Musical Never Written originally premiered in Canada in 2013, created by Canadian-born and New York City-based director, teacher and producer, Alan Kliffer. Kliffer has previously produced a series of innovative shows and workshops, both scripted and improvised including Mixed Company, Dark Secrets, ChasseGalerie, and Evangeline.
