Yesterday I did a reading of the new musical “Princesses,” music, lyrics, and book by Erik Przytulski. My friend Katie Perry (who also did the reading) told me about the reading and I am so glad I was available to do it. I played the leading male of PRINCE (aka the Frog Prince). It was so nice to meet Erik and work with him. He is such a kind human being and is an incredible artist. “Princesses” has such a great message to share and the music is fun, touching, and beautiful. I look forward to seeing where this show will go.
Some more information on “Princesses” and its history:
Erik recently did a workshop of “Princesses” at a theatre festival where only 4 pieces were chosen out of 200 submissions (and Erik’s “Princesses” was one of the 4) and as a result, Erik got to workshop the piece in collaboration with Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell, Children of Eden,etc.). Erik hopes to enter “Princesses” into some Musical Theatre Festivals this coming year such as NAMT and NYMF, to name a couple. He also wants to do a staged reading of the musical in Los Angeles. Good luck Erik!
