London’s The Landor Theatre has announced a season of new musical theatre writing, planned for February/March in 2013.
Entitled ‘From Page To Stage’, the aim is to curate a season of new musical theatre, comprising of showcases, workshops and products of new International musical theatre writing. The idea has been formulated by Katy Lipson of Aria Entertainment, who has teamed up with the Artistic Director of the Landor Theatre, Robert McWhir.
The Landor released a statement saying, ‘People have been asking, ‘Why isn’t there a venue dedicated to the presentation of new musical writing?’ Well now we have just that! Work will be presented by a wide range of writers and producers, including a showcase of songs from The New Musical Songbook (a website recently created with rights-holders and publishers Stagescripts Ltd, A STAGE KINDLY and The New Musical Network), which promotes the online sale and exposure of original musical theatre songs.’
Contributing writers, producers and performers will be announced shortly, and we’ll be on hand to update you with the latest exciting news.
