The 15 Minute Musicals - BLUE Program

For 2020, NMI’s annual offering of 15 Minute Musicals has the unifying theme of “Keep Your Distance.”

The BLUE Program of musicals were all shot as “Zoomsicals” - with all the actors shooting from their own homes. Each of the three shows has a separate cast.

All three of the BLUE shows were directed and choreographed by John Coppola.

CLOSE BUT NOT TOO CLOSE

BREAKOUT

Book by Lalit Sritara, music by Evan Johnson, and lyrics by Kellan Meador

Siblings Jean and Jake are finding it extremely difficult to move on with their lives when divorced Mom and Dad are still openly feuding. One family Zoom session probably can’t make up for all the lost time, but can it at least help find a path forward?

Starring Wilson Bell, Carrie Lynn Certa, Camden Espino, and Socks Whitmore.
