Theatre Now partners with MTI on licensing of 10-minute musicals
Posted by: Official_Press_Release 08:10 pm EST 11/10/20

Theatre Now is excited to announce our partnership with Music Theatre International, one of the world's leading theatrical licensing agencies

We know you love musicals, and you love musical theatre writers! Thanks to the work you continue to support, Theatre Now has taken a huge step toward bringing the new musicals you love to a larger audience.

MTI has announced an agreement with Theatre Now New York to represent and license 25 short musicals from our collection beginning in early 2021. The musicals joining the MTI catalog all began as part of Theatre Now's annual SOUND BITES Festival of 10-Minute Musicals. The licensable version of the shows will all be around 10-20 minutes in length and will be available for live, streaming, and remote performances.

"We are very excited to partner with our friends at Theatre Now to license their collection of 10-minute musicals. These new works allow us the opportunity to highlight burgeoning writers, particularly at a time when their shows' abbreviated running times and ability to be performed remotely are perfect for the age of social-distancing and beyond."
-Drew Cohen, MTI's President and CEO

The 25 licensable musicals in the collection are also included in Theatre Now's new book The 10-Minute Musical: an Anthology from the SOUND BITES Festival.


To celebrate the partnership with MTI and the release of the book, and to highlight the artistic value of the 10-minute musical form, we'll be presenting a FREE live streaming event November 13th and 20th at 8pm. SOUND BITES Streaming Live will feature six new musicals and interviews with their creators. For more information, visit tnny.org/sound-bites-streaming-live.


Theatre Now is an artist service organization dedicated to the development, production, publication, and circulation of short and long- form musicals, by providing ongoing support for writers and their work in order to nurture voices and forms that push the boundaries of musical theatre.

Theatre Now bridges the gap between early readings and fully produced theatrical runs by offering staged and performed developmental productions to pieces that are ready to live on their feet. We strive for continuity and growth in our production process by collaborating with artists on story development through song and dialogue and focusing on their prospective audience.

Theatre Now furthers the visibility of our alumni writers with opportunities for networking, publication, and future production. In addition, we embrace musical properties we've produced as their theatrical licensor, offering them for productions in schools, colleges, communities, and other theatre venues across the country.
