Alice Ripley, Betsy Wolfe, Krysta Rodriguez, and more sing music of Emerging Female Composers for Gender Parity in Musical Theatre on
According to the producers, “Sparkification Productions presents An Evening of Emerging Female Composers came about after noticing that in the many conversations about inequality for women in theatre, musical theatre was largely ignored. Broadway musicals are synonymous with the American theatre and it is especially important to make sure women involved in its creation are spotlighted and given support. Female composers graduate from professional programs at the same rate as their male counterparts, yet there is a significant difference in professional success-‐-‐ and it’s not because they are any less talented! The longer the Broadway community ignores the problem, then the longer the perception persists that female composers aren’t as talented. The goal of Sparkification Productions presents An Evening of Emerging Female Composers is to spotlight female composers and create an event that actively tries to address this imbalance.”
The musical theatre writers selected for the concert are all women who have had work showcased places like NYMF, The MacDowell Colony, and The Yale Institute of Musical Theatre, but have yet to have a major New York or regional production.
