Forget OKCupid, check out The Collaborator Speed Date

OKCollaborators!  It’s time to get your speed date on.

Around February of 2011, we held our first ever Collaborator Speed Date . . . and I’m happy to report we made some matches.  In fact, one of those matches recently emailed me and said that they were pregnant with a production!  Congrats, guys!  It’s a bouncing baby musical!

If you’re new to the blog, let me explain what the speed date is.

It’s a speed date.  For writers.

That about sums it up.  🙂

Ok, maybe just a teensy bit more.

We match up book writers with composers with lyricists in the hopes that they’ll make a match and then make a musical.  Or a play with music.  We don’t care which one, as long as it’s healthy.

Our Back to School Speed Date will take place on Thursday, September 6th at 6:30 in my studios.  Click here to get the details, and to sign up!  Spots are very limited and a bunch are already accounted for (we give first-look at these events to writers that are on our Writer List – click here to get on it for next time so you can be the first to hear), so sign up today!

Oh and writers – while I’ve got you – check out the Supper Club Class we’re starting this Fall.  Fun, food, and figuring out how to make musicals even better.  Click here for more info.
