History

Kit, Caleb and Gil originally matched up randomly in Lincoln Center’s “Across a Crowded Room” program in 2015, where they wrote the first act of THE COMMUTERS, developing it in master classes with Lynn Ahrens and Jason Robert Brown. It was a hit with both the audience and industry panelists including Van Dean of Broadway Records, Barrie Gelles of The Gallery Players, and Shakina Nayfack of the Musical Theatre Factory.

A revised version of THE COMMUTERS was voted the audience favorite and was nominated for five awards, including best musical, at the Riant Theatre’s 2016 Strawberry One Act Festival.
