The White City selected for the 2014 NMTC!

Added on by Avi Amon.

Julia and I are humbled and excited to announce that our show, The White City, was selected for development as part of the 2014 National Music Theater Conference! We'll be spending a few weeks this summer workshopping the show and learning from everyone we meet. Can't wait for the process to start.  

Check out the press release on PLAYBILL and visit the O'Neill website for more information, show dates, etc.

New Demos!

Added on by Avi Amon.

The past few months have been CRAZY CITY.  Julia and I have been insane people, spending plenty of late-night hours in the studio after working full days at our jobs. But it's been worth it. There are now 10 tracks recorded from the The White City, including 4 new ones this month alone. I wanted to specifically share the opening number - we're super proud of it and SO thankful for all the time and energy everyone has given to help make it a reality.  Have a listen:  

Ensemble - Avi Amon, Hannah Dowdy, Benny Gammerman, Julia Gytri, Geoffrey Kidwell, Beth Kirkpatrick, Matthew Ellis Murphy, Sara Nicholson, Helen Park, Mike Siktberg

Guitar - Mike Siktberg
Piano - Will Buck

Chicago 1893. Meet Lucy, a member of Buffalo Bill's Wild West, in town to perform for crowds at the World's Fair. She quickly discovers that she's not interested in performing: all she wants is to be the audience and bear witness to this historic event. As she explores the grounds with Jem, a Columbian Guard, they learn of the modern wonders that the World's Columbian Exposition has to offer, becoming entranced by all of the possibilities that lie in their future.
