GHOST-S: a musical about a musical

Book by Kincaid Jones
Lyrics by Noelle Donfeld and Brian Woodbury
Music by Brian Woodbury

In this ghost town,
the past always comes back to haunt you.

NMI DEVELOPMENT: Ghost-s was developed as part of the Academy for New Musical Theatre's producer-driven initiative. In producer-driven projects, the staff at ANMT put together a creative team and help develop a musical for the specific needs of a particular producer, in exchange for a promise of a public staged reading of the completed show and the option of a first production. Ghost-s began as a 'commission' from the Lyric Theatre in Hollywood as an adaptation of Ibsen's Ghosts.

The Academy developed Sour Grapes for Broadway Rose Theatre using its classic model: assembling the creative team, followed by idea, outline, 15-minute presentation and first draft.

AFTER NMI: Sour Grapes had a public reading at Broadway Rose Theatre in August 2006, and a workshop production at the Copake Lake Theatre Company in September 2006.
