Librettist wanted for Japan-themed musical 


Posted at 14:25 under MUSIC, MUSICAL, THEATRE, JAPAN


My Japan-themed musical Peach has been selected for a pitching slot for next years BEAM:2016 showcase of new musical theatre writing.

So I am looking for a librettist to help me reform and rewrite the libretto and the dialogues. It's preferable with someone with insight and understanding of Japanese/East Asian culture as I'm very very eager to avoid Asian sterotypes.

Peach is a 'modern-day Cinderella' set mostly in Japan to the backdrop of the financial crisis.

I write music and lyrics. I've written loads of songs for this show, 2 hours to be exact but I understand the lyrics needs to be rewritten as we rewrite the book, and it definitely needs new songs, more natural ensemble numbers, etc, as 20 of the songs I've already written need to be cut.

However, I really believe in this musical, and so did the jury selecting it to be one of the shows to have a 10-minute pitch slot on 4 November at Park Theatre, London.

Here is a demo reel, with old lyrics:
