IN THE WORLD

FORA-logo-lg-blk_edited.jpg

FORA

Book & Lyrics by Jae Broderick

Music by Matthew AC Cohen & Jae Broderick

FORA is the forgotten language of the island nation of Forafu and its story is told in this brand new musical. We meet Forafu in the time of its Great Migration. The island is losing its citizens and traditions to the harsh realities of a changing world. Told through the eyes of 17-year old Gigi, the fate of a nation rests on the choice between unraveling the mysteries of the past or succumbing to the struggles of the present.

FORA was selected to the New York Musical Festival, a semi-finalist for the Pipeline Foundation Arts Grant and is the recipient of a residency at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center.

The first rule of Advance? Don't get on the news. 

 

Rae Morrison is an aimless writer drifting through her 20’s when she is suddenly pulled into the high stakes world of Advance. Not a White House employee and not NOT a White House employee, she finds herself fumbling through Secret Service meetings, casually given off-the-record intel and coming face to face with the President of the United States. When Rae breaks the first rule of Advance mere hours into her training, she must choose between returning to a life of blank pages or daring to write a new story.

JENNY & JUNE

Book & Lyrics by Jae Broderick

Music by André McRae

Jenny & June is a musical based on the true story of June & Jennifer Gibbons and tells the story of their struggle to be heard. The Twins, raised in Wales to parents from Barbados, were a mystery for much of their lives and famously spoke only to each other. However, the sisters lived amazing inner lives and were incredible artists, writers who placed words not on their lips but on the page. 

 

Jenny & June is being developed in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop, was a 2023 Eugene O'Neill semifinalist and the recipient of a residency at Rhinebeck Writers Retreat.
