By Keith Glover and Joshua Schmidt
The result of a Musicals in Partnership Initiative commission. Composer Josh Schmidt came to Playwrights Horizons with a project that included original jazz music, written with an eye towards the improvisation that is essential to the form. A theatrical piece which
uses musical improvisation is a unique challenge. In order to meet this challenge, the Literary staff paired Josh with playwright Keith Glover, who has written several blues musicals.
