Arts Garage Summer Tune-Up series is a new initiative of The Theatre at Arts Garage to provide the greater Delray Beach community with an immersion into the newest work in American musical theatre being written today. If you are a musical theatre fan, but are tired of a constant diet of the old “war-horses,” and have been wondering what our best and brightest young musical theatre talent has been creating, these four new musicals, performed in a play-reading concert format, with scripts in hand, will illuminate the innovative musical and playwriting styles that are coming from the minds and imaginations of these extraordinary playwright/composers.
Linda and Robert Schmier, Executive Producers
HOSTAGE SONG, Thu, 7:30pm, 6/20/13 ($15-20)
by Clay McLeod Chapman & Kyle Jarrow
In this remarkably original rock musical, a man and woman are blindfolded and bound. Jennifer is a journalist who was kidnapped at a check-point. Jim is a contractor working for the Pentagon. We are never told exactly when or where the events take place, but the details strongly suggest a current conflict involving America. Slumped in an empty cell, Jennifer and Jim pass the time by playing games or exchanging reminiscences about their families and the turbulent circumstances that have brought them together.
Tickets are $15-$20 in advance, $5 more at the door.
