Composer-Librettist Studio at New Dramatists

Added on by Avi Amon.

It's the last day of my residency at New Dramatists tomorrow. After an insane 2.5 weeks generating material, we'll be having a public reading of sorts. Join us, if you can, between 1pm and 5pm to listen to some new work created by some wonderful people.

All public events at New Dramatists are FREE. Reservations are required. Please email newdramatists@newdramatists.org or call 212-757-6960 for information about the day's schedule and to reserve your seat.
