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, December 9th at 7:30pm:
MONDAY NIGHT READING: STILETTOS AND STEEL
Join us Monday, December 9 at 7:30pm for another Monday Night Reading when our Academy Repertory Company will present a reading of STILETTOS AND STEEL, a new musical in development by NMI Member Isabel Storey.
The show is the true story about a young woman who went to the Tenderloin district of San Francisco to explore her sexuality – and wound up in a colorful world of prostitutes, pimps, cross-dressers, cops, and thugs and eventually became the pimp for her own group of women looking for protection from the rough and tumble streets.

THE LEARNED LADIES launches online
"The Learned Ladies" is a new musical internet series featuring stories, songs, poems and essays from obscure women composers and forgotten women authors of the past. Award-winning actress Elise Dewsberry plays southern belle Ann Reeves Jarvis as she welcomes us into her pre-Civil-War music room, introducing us to women authors and composers, like an antebellum "Masterpiece Theatre." Mrs. Jarvis first tells us a little about the featured woman author's background and literary bent, and then regales us with a reading, followed by a song.

“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.”
