Join legendary Japanese-American architect Minoru Yamasaki as he travels far and wide from Seattle to Kyoto, Japan, and eventually New York City where he fights with the Big Apple big shots as he races the clock to design the original Twin Towers. It’s the story of the immigrant artist who overcomes the odds to make his dreams come true, forever changing history as we know it.

Monday, May 20 - 8:00pm Pacific

By Angela Parrish and Makena Metz
At a local LA chapter of the support group “Sick and Tired,” people with mental and/or physical illnesses come together to share stories and be their authentic selves. When a new, unexpected member attends the group for the first time, the people there must reckon with their past and present to show the world that they deserve to have a voice.
Join the Livestream

All readings will take place at New Musicals Inc. in North Hollywood, and will also be live-streamed via YouTube (Sign up for a YouTube Notification HERE).

“THE MAX FACTOR FACTOR [is] a bright and cheerful musical romp …one of the most (if not the most) original musicals ever to hit the local stage scene …
Who says they don’t make ‘em like they used to?”

“A RING IN BROOKLYN stands a good chance of a life beyond its current engagement. One thing is certain. Its book and song writers could not have found a better team to bring their vision to life than the onstage and behind-the-scenes team behind this very promising world premiere.”
