Joining the pair as book writer is Jonathan Tolins (Buyer & Cellar). The 1990s-set show will follow fictional opera star Victoria Merritt.
The work is commissioned and being developed through the newly formed New Works Provincetown, a theatre lab founded by Mark Cortale, artistic director of The Art House in the Cape Cod hot spot. The three will convene in Provincetown this summer with additional workshops slated for the fall and spring 2021, each culminating in a public presentation.
The program kicked off its inaugural season last fall with the solo show He Plays the Violin with Well-Strung's Edmund Bagnell.
New Works Provincetown is also commissioning two additional titles (details to come), which will receive workshops during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Jonathan Murray and Harvey Reese of Wild Oak Media serve as producing partners for the three projects.
