The Store Under the Portico aka Musical 2!

The title is here and the first draft is DONE! Musical 2 is now “finished”.  I’m laughing even as I type that because it’s never finished, but the first draft is!

“Sooo how does this work?”

This is one of the questions the bro and I constantly get asked whenever we meet with someone about the show.

Person looks at us, gestures back and forth and asks, “Sooo how does this work?”

Which Came First: the Book or the Song?

Currently, the bro and I are doing a Christmas show out in Bristol, PA for the month.  It’s a great little gig, with some fantastic people.  Most of the rehearsals are at night however, so we’ve taken this opportunity as a mini writer’s retreat and trying to write/finish Musical 2 (for lack of a title).  It takes place in Italy during WWII, specifically toward the end of the war and the northern occupation.  It’s a fascinating topic and one that most people haven’t really explored.  It’s one even I’m learning about as we continue to research and write.

We’re slowly getting through it (we’re up to about 4 scenes in Act 1) and we have to finish the whole show by the end of the month for a deadline.
