about us

we study, develop and produce new musicals

New Musicals Inc. hosts many programs which support new musicals in development.
We develop several dozen musicals each year for producers and writers all around the country through
table readings, workshops, concerts, and occasional productions.
Our academic wing, the Academy for Musical Theatre, offers courses, both online and live in Los Angeles,
for professional musical theatre writers.

We’re a non-profit 501(c)3 organization (FEIN 01-0745909), so donations to us are tax-deductible.
We are funded through an intricate balance of donations, fees for services, special events, conferences,
concerts, classes, grants, fundraisers and royalties from musicals we have developed.

New Musicals Inc.

New Musicals Inc. is our professional development branch.  We develop musicals for producers all around the country, tailoring the show for specific audiences and budgets.  We develop several dozen musicals a year.  We have a repertory company of sight-singing actors which meets weekly to give producers and writers a chance to workshop their shows prior to production.

We sponsor several nationwide events:  Stages Musical Theatre Festival, the Search for New Musicals, the New Voices Project, and a biennial Conference on the Biz of the Musical Theatre Biz.

We offer a complete range of development for new musicals:  dramaturgy, table readings, staged readings, workshops, concerts, skeletal productions and occasional full-scale productions.

The Academy for New Musical Theatre

We’ve been around for more than 40 years and have have helped hundreds of writers and producers launch thousands of musicals.  We began as the Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop.  We became the Academy for New Musical Theatre in 2002, adding additional curriculum such as the Lyric Lab, Music Lab, and Book Lab, all of which are now also available online.

Our Core Curriculum allows composers, lyricists and bookwriters from all over the world to collaborate with a new team each month, creating ballads, duets, musical scenes, ensembles, and comedy songs; culminating in a 15 minute musical which we produce in Los Angeles.  You can participate in any of these workshops either online or in-person.

We also have rehearsal rooms for rent at competitive rates.
