"We are crazy impressed and honored to be working with you. You all rock so very very hard!!"
Michael Shepperd, Celebration Theatre
"Once again you have identified moments that are not quite working and suggested ways to make them work. I will address the remaining points ... and return to you an outline that should be the springboard for creating a fine show. We can’t thank you enough."
"ANMT has found a way to combine both the educational component – How To Write A Musical – with the practical application – access to people and organizations looking for new musicals. In that, they are unique and proven. ANMT was responsible for bringing the three of us together – composer, lyricist and librettist – and introducing us to Steve Ullman and the South Bay Civic Light Opera. Without ANMT, THE COTTON CLUB would never have happened for the three of us in the way it did."
Arnold Margolin, Jason Kuller, Weslie Brown The Cotton Club
"EWP had an opportunity to create an original musical from idea-to-production. We would never have attempted it on our own, but ANMT's incredible creativity, energy and artistic quality of musical development drove us all the way to production. The process is astonishing. We can't imagine how we would produce an original musical again without ANMT."
Tim Dang East West Players
"ANMT is a welcome oasis for musical theatre devotees in the Los Angeles area. Its highly qualified staff knows the art inside-out, and in a stunningly comprehensive first year instilled in me the necessary tools to write professional level musical theatre. Their connections with the local and national musical theatre community provided me the dream chance of a lifetime: to write an original musical with a nationally recognized theater. I am grateful to ANMT for strengthening and deepening my already fervent passion for musical theatre."
Aaron Coleman Lyricist, IMELDA
"I can’t tell you how useful your feedback is. We have NOTHING like this in England. No system at all for informed investigation of a musical. It’s so rewarding to see a group of professionals-in-the-know examining your work and not letting you get away with anything. It’s all too easy to kid yourself."
