The Great American Musical Project

The American Music Theatre Project is a $2 million, multiyear endeavor designed to turn Northwestern University into the “leading collegiate incubator of new works of musical theater. If all goes according to the long-range plan, future summers in Evanston will feature a variety of music-theater professionals working with students on new musicals in a developmental atmosphere somewhat akin to the Sundance Theatre Institute or a musical version of the Williamstown Theatre Festival or the Iowa Writers Workshop.”
