In February 2011, Mark T Evans and William TN Hall under the umbrella of TNT Music debuted a new song series, designed to benefit important causes whilst showcasing the current work of new musical theatre writers. The first three editions have been huge successes and have comprised of material from musical theatre writers from all over NYC and beyond, from prestigious institutions such as the NYU Graduate MT Writing Program and the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop, performed by a small ensemble of professional actors.
Are You Working On Something New? had it's first edition February 28th 2011 at Don't Tell Mama NYC. It started off as a showcase for songwriters in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Writers Workshop. The first edition was such a success, packing the house and raising $1000 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS that William TN Hall and music director Mark T Evans decided to make it into an ongoing series.
Are You Working...? is great because it's a win/win situation. The writers get showcased, the actors get to work on new material and vice versa and everything is for a wonderful charity. We are especially proud of our ongoing relationship with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, not least after the charity announced they would be donating funds to the hurricane relief services in the wake of hurricane Sandy.
