I am a playwright working out of Dallas, TX. To tell you a little about me, my current project is actually being hailed as a new 'staple of American Theatre' by Dallas reviewers and I'm currently in talks to be produced with other companies.
Right now I'm working on a new project about couples in varies stages of their lives all brought together in the eyes of one person. I could easily write this as a straight play, but the more time I spend with it, the more I think it should be a musical. I'm trying to find someone to collaborate with on this project. I want something modern a la Next to Normal or Fun Home for example. Of course we would decide together what's best for the book, but something contemporary is definately more where I think it's headed.
I also happen to own a theatre company that produces new works so I know this is something that will at least be produced in the Dallas area. If you are interested please let me know.
