A Bright & Witty New Musical

One aspiring young novelist thinks he has discovered the formula for success: slaving over his novel in the morning and tutoring rich kids in the afternoon to pay the bills. Unfortunately, his characters are starting to develop attitudes of their own. But muses can come in the least expected places, and his latest “cash cow” student, a sullen 16-year-old from the Upper Eastside, just might have the key to his success. Set to a fun and energetic pop score, this new musical comedy is filled with family drama, creative angst, and romantic blunders that will leave you smiling.

    "The Tutor’s cleverest conceit is that the characters in Edmund’s novel-in-progress come to life to advise him. Played adroitly by Matthew Kacergis and Kristen deLohr Helland, they shape-shift from role to role as Edmund tries to commit to a milieu: Civil War? Roaring ’20s? Wild West? Irish immigration?" Seattle Weekly

    "The acting, vocals, and music are all great in this production; I also really loved the movement of the staging; kudos to Scenic Designer Scott Fyfe." Heed the Hedonist

    "The bottom line is that "The Tutor" is a thoroughly entertaining, musically accomplished and dramatically convincing small-scale story that really works." Seattle Actor
