CONNECTED is not only a musical comedy, but also a multi-media experience in which you will feel a shift of being digitally connected to that of being emotionally connected with the characters. As one theater professional put it; “Clever as hell! Love the multimedia connection with the audience!”
This is the latest from composer, lyricist and librettist Rick Williams. He has had two other musicals produced, one Off-Off Broadway and the other Off-Westend.
Connected the musical might be described as “They’re Playing Our Song” meets “She Loves Me.” It is a fast-moving witty journey exploring the true nature of human connection and its importance in our lives with or without a device. It is easily producible with a single unit set, and a cast of 10.
We would be happy to send you the libretto and sample recordings (or a link).
