OUT: A Queer Songbook by Jaron Barney
September 13, 2023
Actor Therapy New Works (ATNW) and Very Intense Productions presents OUT: A Queer Songbook, an original song cycle with music and lyrics by Jaron Barney. Out explores the joy, the pain, the stereotypes, the politics, and the love within modern queer life. Under the direction of Andrew Mullins, this original pop musical experience is a celebration of the full spectrum of queer existence. Musical direction is also by songwriter Jaron Barney.
Very Intense Productions has partnered with Actor Therapy to launch Actor Therapy New Works (ATNW), a series that will develop and produce readings, workshops, and concerts of brand new musicals and plays cultivated by Actor Therapy students and faculty. Stay tuned for what ATNW has up next!
