American Theatre Company Presents a Musical about Trying to Create a Musical: "[title of show]"
On this edition of StudioTulsa, we welcome Hunter Bell and Jana Ellis, who are both involved with "[title of show]," the Tony-nominated one-act musical that is currently being staged at the Tulsa PAC by the locally-based American Theatre Company. (To learn more about ATC's production of "[title of show]," including show times and ticket details, please see this page from the PAC's website.) This very popular and tuneful meta-play chronicles its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival. Bell wrote the book for this show, and starred (as "himself") in the original production, which debuted in 2004, appeared off-Broadway in 2006, and was then staged on Broadway in 2008. He also attended college in St. Louis with Ellis, who teaches drama at a high school in Broken Arrow and is directing ATC's production of "[title of show]," which continues its run through Saturday the 15th.
