MTI Acquires May We All: A New Country Musical

MTI is announcing the acquisition of May We All: A Country Musical!

The show was conceived and developed by Brian Kelley (of Florida Georgia Line) and his production company CuzBro Productions, in partnership with Lively McCabe Entertainment, and BMG. Co-written by Troy Britton Johnson, Todd Johnson, and Eric Pfeffinger, the musical features arrangements and orchestrations by Brian Usifer . Suitable for all audiences, May We All features an authentic country score of hit songs made famous by Florida Georgia Line, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Little Big Town, Old Dominion, Brooks & Dunn, Keith Urban, and many more. The show also introduces two original songs co-written by Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, debuting exclusively via May We All.

The musical debuted at the Playhouse on the Square in Memphis, TN, in January and recently completed its commercial summer run at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville, to which American Songwriter hailed, "May We All gives fans of the genre a chance to step into the humble, small towns that are the lifeblood of country music." It's now being readied for a limited release.

"May We All is a dream come true. Being able to first introduce it onstage in the heart of Country music in Nashville, TN, and now watch it take on a life of its own with Music Theatre International sure is something special," shares Kelley. "My partners and I can't wait to see how Jenna's story continues to inspire everyone to never give up. Even the craziest of dreams are worth chasing!"

Drew Cohen, President and CEO of Music Theatre International stated, "Given the initial response to May We All, we are thrilled to offer this funny and moving new show, featuring some great characters and many of the biggest and most-recognizable Country Music hits. Audiences have fallen in love with the story and find that the recognition factor and appeal of the songs is off the charts… literally."

May We All takes you to Harmony, Tennessee, "the town that sings," where music used to flow through every part of town like the water supply, but lately hope is drying up.

Two years ago, when local sensation Jenna Coates left Harmony to pursue her dreams of stardom in Nashville, her family and friends saw nothing but success for her. But Jenna never finds her hit and returns home, without a record deal or a dime to spare, only to discover that Harmony has also fallen on hard times.

Now Jenna will need to face the music, reconnect with those she loved, and make peace with her past to save herself and the small town she loves.
