readings / concerts
New Musicals Inc. is excited to produce readings and concerts of new musicals in development whenever we are able to - including our monthly MONDAY NIGHT READINGS of the newest work from our members; and our almost-annual “got musical” concert of current shows in development.
A concert reading of INVISIBLE by David Hollingsworth and David Orris,
performed at the Colony Theatre in Burbank.
MONDAY NIGHT READING: ENTERTAINING MURDER
Join us Monday, February 25th at 8:00pm for another Monday Night Reading when our Academy Repertory Company will present a reading of the 2019 SEARCH FOR NEW MUSICALS winner by Chris Burgess. ENTERTAINING MURDER is a song cycle for four voices, based on the true story of the hanging of Edith Thompson - a British ‘cause celebre’ in 1922. There is now a consensus that she was innocent of colluding to murder her husband. So why did British justice fail her? And how did her sixty three love letters serve to incriminate her? Presented through New Musicals Inc. and the Academy Repertory Company as part of the Monday Night Reading Series.
