About this Event
While we can’t travel to Broadway or around the world to seek inspiration for our musical theatre writing, allow us to bring New York to you through a new series of masterclasses across 2021.
Mercury Musical Developments and BOOK Music & Lyrics present Voices from New York – a new series of online masterclass sessions from Broadway theatre makers.
The first event in this series features Nancy Golladay on Thursday 4 February 2021 from 6.30pm – 8.30pm, focusing on writing the libretto of a musical.
This event will take place online via Zoom, and will cost £10 per session for MMD and BML members, and £15 for non-members. Links and details on how to access the event will be sent via Eventbrite in the lead up to the event.
If you have access requirements or need assistance with booking on Eventbrite or using Zoom, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
