For walks down Memory Lane

You’ve binge watched Raymond Ainsley fight for his dream in Hollywood, you’ve followed Andrew Cunanan to Miami Beach and his deadly rendezvous with Versace, gawked as J. Pierrepont Finch climbed the corporate ladder on Broadway, watched him change minds and win hearts on glee.

…hear new musicals we’ve enjoyed at Musi-Cals and 3d Mondays. This from Gunfight-at-the-Not-So-OK-Saloon by Brooke de Rosa.

The Foundation for New American Musicals began as The Festival for New American Musicals with the vision of introducing classic and new musicals to southern California audiences and ensuring musicals a place in the cultural conversation. The Festival produced 1700+ performances from Santa Barbara to San Diego for more than 1.75 million people. In 2015 FNAM adopted a different mission: to educate, mentor and showcase the next generation of musicals for stage, screen and new media. Four major programs support composers, lyricists and book writers of all backgrounds from high school to college to graduate school and beyond.
