In 1989 the Festival of New Musicals was created to provide a forum to celebrate the new musicals that were being produced and presented around the country. Since then, the Festival has introduced musical theatre producers to 260 musicals and 491 writers from around the world. More than 85% have gone on to subsequent readings, workshops, productions and tours, been licensed, and/or recorded on cast albums as a direct result of the Festival!

Held over two days in New York City every fall, the Festival produces 45-minute presentations of eight new musicals before an industry-only audience with the experience and resources to move the work forward.
