A completely overhauled version of Aaron’s and my musical, lift, will be workshopped as part of Coastal Carolina University‘s 2013-2014 season. The week-long workshop will take place October 16-24 (with a public performance on the 24th) and will be directed by Gary John LaRosa, who helmed our previous reading in New York City in 2009. We can’t wait to dig into the new draft, which features a majority of brand new songs and a smaller cast. It’s become a “chamber musical,” with a strong focus on character-driven narrative and a rather experimental relationship between music and dialogue (in Aaron’s words: It’s more of a Light in the Piazza now, rather than a Spitfire Grill).
