Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY AUG 3, 2020

Asolo Rep is proud to announce that the winning new musical in its Ground Floor: Making Musicals series is Foundatin, with book, music and lyrics by Christopher Anselmo and Jared Corak. The winner was announced in a live, online Awards Ceremony on Thursday, July 30, culminating the series that previewed four new musicals on the theatre’s Facebook and YouTube pages between May 21 and July 23, 2020. The winner was determined by a public vote and will receive a full staged reading at Asolo Rep.

“Making Musicals is a wonderful compliment to Asolo Rep’s strong focus as an incubator where great musicals are born,” said Producing Artistic Director Michael Donald Edwards. “In the past fourteen seasons, Asolo Rep has produced seven musicals which have been new to the American stage. Presenting new musicals is a potential risk, but has strengthened our mission, generated new relationships in the artistic community, and established Asolo Rep as a company dedicated to fostering new work while reenvisioning classics.”

“It has been such an honor to work with these brilliant emerging musical theatre artists,” said Celine Rosenthal, Asolo Rep Associate Artistic Director, who serves as the Director of the Ground Floor Series and also directed all four musicals. “I'm so pleased that we could bring something joyful and hopeful to our audience during this uncertain time. I’m thrilled for Chris and Jared and very much look forward to working with them on FOUNTAIN in the future."
