Musical Theater Factory is thrilled to welcome you to our virtual salon hosted by Troy Anthony, with special guest David Gomez. During this salon we want to invite musical theater makers of excellence to present work that is dismantling oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation through powerful and joyful story in song.
During the virtual salon, we welcome artists from across the nation (and around the world) to perform their new and radical music theater work live from their homes, or to share a video of a short performance. Each artist will have about 5 minutes to share.
David Gomez is a composer, lyricist, and librettist. His songs have been shared at Joe’s Pub, 54 Below, and Musical Theatre Factory’s 4×15 series. Other projects include LAUNDRY DAY: a queer musical mural (Latino Arts Festival), and LORENZO: a radio novella, and the lyrics for MISS HAVISHAM’S WEDDING (with composer Jude Obermüller and librettist Laura Barati). David is also one of the 2020 Dramatist Guild Fellows. He is invested in continuing the tradition of rancheros y corridos which use lyrics to celebrate Latinx stories. MFA: NYU for Musical Theatre Writing.
We ask that everyone takes special care in uplifting and supporting each other. This is inclusive of only offering criticism when it is asked for and being respectful to gender identities. We seek to dismantle oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – by participating, you agree to respect one another. In the event of unintentional harm, we support active engagement in harm reduction.
You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive audience member. We can’t wait to see you there!
Please Note: “I Want to Share” tickets will close at 8pm on the Tuesday prior to the event, and “I Want to Watch” tickets will close at 7:30pm on the evening of the event.
