With a hummable pop-rock score that pays homage to classic musical theatre, The Chosen One follows a trio of queer high schoolers who have created a spellbinding fantasy world to conjure what they’re missing in their own lives. This hilarious, heart-warming, and heart-wrenching coming of age story reminds us that the people we love are the most magical things in the world.

We are in preparing for a Fall 2022 industry reading. Check out this page for demos and more information!

The Romeo & Juliet Project

Delayed due to Covid-19

The Romeo & Juliet Project reimagines Shakespeare's timeless love story for the 21st Century through the iconic music of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo. The new musical takes place in the modern, war-torn metropolis of Verona as the newly-elected Chancellor Paris vows to destroy the progressive resistance and return the city to its traditional roots. Through an intricate weaving of Benatar and Giraldo's riveting rock anthems, inspired ballads, and new songs - an ethnically diverse, multi-cultural cast will explore how love and equality battle for survival in times of great transformation. THE ROMEO & JULIET PROJECT imagines peace in a divided world.
