Musical Theater Factory is thrilled to welcome you to our virtual salon hosted by MTF Maker Troy Anthony, and special guest Helen Park. During this salon we want to invite musical theater makers of excellence to present work that is dismantling oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation through powerful and joyful story in song.
During the virtual salon, we welcome artists from across the nation (and around the world) to perform their new and radical music theater work live from their homes, or to share a video of a short performance. Each artist will have about 5 minutes to share.
Helen Park is a songwriter and music producer whose work has been lauded by the New York Times as “addictive.” For her groundbreaking creations as composer, lyricist, and music producer on the Broadway- bound musical KPOP, Park received the Richard Rodgers Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical, as well as three Drama-Desk nominations. Most recently, Park wrote songs for the Netflix Original Animated Feature musical film OVER THE MOON, directed by Disney legend and Academy Award winner Glen Keane, which was the most-viewed program on Netflix during its release week. Park is an alumnus of NYU Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program and BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop.
We ask that everyone takes special care in uplifting and supporting each other. This is inclusive of only offering criticism when it is asked for and being respectful to gender identities. We seek to dismantle oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – by participating, you agree to respect one another. In the event of unintentional harm, we support active engagement in harm reduction.
You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive audience member. We can’t wait to see you there!
Please Note: “I Want to Share” tickets will close at 8pm on the Wednesday prior to the event, and “I Want to Watch” tickets will close at 6pm on the evening of the event.
