Composer Neil Bartram and writer Brian Hill joined “scribbles” with the co-stars of their Drama Desk nominated Broadway musical, The Story of My Life.
An idea can come out of the blue – from a line in a book, a comment from a child or a newspaper article. “As long as there is some tug emotionally,” says Broadway show writer Brian Hill, “the kernel of the idea stays with me.” And then, after consulting with his partner, Neil Bartram (coincidentally, a composer and lyricist), Hill starts outlining a story.
“Amazingly,” he says, “often when we’ve completely fleshed out a show, have the performers cast, the costumes, the set, – after everything is done, I’ll go back to that outline and find we’ve used it almost exactly as originally written. There has been very little fiddling with the concept.”
But that doesn’t mean there weren’t hundreds of edits to dialogue. And hundreds of re-workings of songs – composed by Bartram, of course.
And that’s what will drive our show, Making Musicals – A Concert with Conversation.
