Totally worth your ten minutes
This podcast is not only an engaging way to spend ten minutes of your time, but also is an excellent way to get to know the work of exciting emerging theatre writers. These first two ten-minute musicals are not mere snippets from longer shows, but are fully realized short stories that stand on their own and leave the listener satisfied. And the music! It's never less than expertly crafted, with a welcome freshness and lots of heart. The performances of the actors are top-notch, and the podcast itself is professionally rendered. Looking forward to hearing more!
Really professional work, with great music and an engaging short story. It's amazing how ten minutes are in fact enough to get connected with each story and its characters. Totally worth your time!
Worth ten minutes!
These vividly written and performed musicals simultaneous transport me to the front row of a theater and a 1950s living room where I anxiously tune the radio to hear what's next.
