The Virginia Tech School of Performing Arts presents the the musical theatre "[title of show]" starting on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 through Friday, February 15, 2019 inside Theatre 101 on College Avenue in downtown Blacksburg, VA.
Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends.
With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival’s deadline and dream about the show changing their lives.
'[title of show]', taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show], follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression.
In the span of 90 minutes, they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. '[title of show]' is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre—a uniquely American art form and to the joy of collaboration.
The musical received a Tony Award® nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009. Music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and book by Hunter Bell.
