There is an apartment complex that seems unremarkable on the outside, like all the other boring buildings on a plain urban street, but is in fact filled with people on the precipice of something great. Some are working on their next big hit, or daring to ask that person they see in the elevator on a date, or just creating new ways to make their customers happy. Each resident is at the dawn of something new, uncharted. Pushing beyond their boundaries to achieve a goal. This interwoven narrative musical explores what it means to be human and on the cusp of greatness.
What is a Stage Reading?
Last year’s production of I’m Doing This was presented as a stage reading, where actors performed the show holding scripts and with minimal design elements, staging, or choreography. The show was not memorized, and new pages and script/music changes were made up until opening night. The first presentation of a new work is typically done as a reading.
This year’s production will culminate in a second stage reading, building on the material written by the writers last season. This reading will be performed over one weekend.
