Staff Picks for March

Director of Legal and Business Affairs Deb Hartnett picks her favorite shows from the MTI Catalog:

"The powerful scores to my favorite shows are what attracted me to them, but looking for a common theme, I noticed these musicals are all either completely original – Next to Normal and Company – or splendid adaptations from somewhat obscure or sprawling underlying works – a German play, a painting, fairy tales.  Even though Once is based on a film, it’s been transformed into a magical theatrical piece. These shows illustrate the importance of a good book.  Never leave the bookwriter’s name off the billing."
