That is what came to mind when I got an email from another friend this past weekend (links added by me):
I just wanted to send out a shameless plug for my show, The Eulogy, next weekend.The Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival (associated w/ the Merry Go Round Playhouse) in Auburn has created a stage dedicated to, 'pitching,' new works. My original musical has been chosen to be one of two shows to present opening weekend. The Pitch is a 45-50 minute presentation of a new musical, kinda like an extended movie trailer. The Eulogy specifically deals with my faith and the memory of my grandfather. I would love to see you guys there!
How cool is it that someone I have been friends with since middle school wrote a musical that is actually getting produced and featured at a theater festival?!
She's brilliant and funny and wonderful, and I am certain her work will be a tremendous success. If you're going to be in the area next week, I encourage you to check it out!
