Be in the WORLD PREMIERE of a brand new work written by an EMMY® Award-winning composer!!
Learn about the rewards and challenges of creating a character from the ground up, and working with a developing script.
What does it take to write a letter? What are the connections that are formed when we put ink to paper? How do carefully chosen words craft the depth of expression? In this review, an interconnected series of characters write their deepest thoughts at pivotal moments in their life. Ranging in age, era, places and backgrounds, each character learns who they are in their innermost thoughts, and ultimately seek the answers to the next step in life through the letters that they write.
