Not Quite Opera Productions launches Round One, an evening of new songs by Bay Area composers of musical theater at the Alcove Theater. NQO is one of the few places in the nation that exclusively develops and produces totally original musical theater.
The Alcove Theater is an intimate, comfortable 49-seat space with great acoustics and a welcoming semi-circular stage. You’ll feel like you’re part of the action from any seat in the house.
*The theme of the April showcase is “Coping with the Ever Changing World.” It features an eclectic mix of songs in styles ranging from driving rock ’n roll, pleasant pop, blast-from-the-past pastiche and the soaring melodies of classic and contemporary Broadway.
Among the 10 new musicals represented are: The Texas Chainsaw Musical, a comedy about a serial killer; _.Love _in which a middle-aged couple reunites through online dating; Meet the Zeroes, a satire on the American family, Another Man’s Treasure, an intimate piece set in a second-hand store and The Anti-musical in which an average office worker finds himself swept into a real-life musical against his will.
The composers and lyricists are a veritable Who’s-Who of Bay Area rising talent: Cory Bytoff, Owen Dockham, Richard Jennings, Randy Kasten, Sandy Kasten, Ron Lytle, Pat Morris, Tracy Held Potter, Liz White Salk and Patrick Wills.
