After an audience-loved curated revue in 2018, Beyond the Ingenue is back. In this rendition, Wisconsin-based composers have worked with local performers to create musical theatre pieces about the womxn who inspire them. In these eleven original songs, they face questions, losses, prejudices, pain, trials, and triumphs. From actors to advocates, writers to philanthropists, rulebreakers to game-changers, this concert takes you into the lives of ten extraordinary people who challenged the rules, defied the odds, and made history. With Beyond the Ingenue: Trailblazers, we prove once again that, on stage, womxn deserve better stories.
I have co-written a song portraying climate activist Greta Thunberg ("Homework") for this production.
