Production Description

Broadcast Music, Inc., a global leader in music rights management, is now accepting applications for its first year composer/lyricist class for the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop. A recipient of the Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre Award, the Lehman Engel Musical Workshop consists of approximately 250 composers, lyricists, and book writers who are actively writing new works for the musical theater.

The first year class is moderated by BMI’s Director of Musical Theatre, Patrick Cook, and Workshop Administrator, Frederick Freyer. Alumni include Tony Award winners Robert Lopez ("The Book of Mormon," "Avenue Q"), Edward Kleban ("A Chorus Line"), Maury Yeston ("Titanic," "Grand Hotel," "Nine"), Alan Menken ("Newsies," "Beauty and the Beast," "Little Shop of Horrors"), Jeff Marx ("Avenue Q"), Michael John LaChiusa ("Queen of the Mist," "Marie Christine," "The Wild Party"), and Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey ("Next to Normal").

The purpose of the Workshop is to bring writers together to work under the guidance and supervision of experienced professionals in order to develop new creative talent in American musical theater. A springboard for new works, the Workshop creates a learning environment for members to experiment, take risks, and learn from moderators and other participants.
