Great Songs that Almost Made the Cut 2014

October 22, 6:00 pm

New World Stages, 340 W. 50th Street, NYC

For many years, the NAMT Festival has presented compact 45-minute cuts of eight great new musicals to an industry-only audience. This meant that not only did a lot of great songs fall victim to our time constraints, but the public could not come and enjoy all of these amazing shows…until now!

The night before NAMT’s 26th Festival of New Musicals, this year’s writers shared some of those amazing songs that were NOT heard at the Festival.

Part preview, part therapy…all new music!
