A New Musical

Lyrics by Jill Abramovitz

Music by Brad Alexander

Book by Erik Forrest Jackson

“I EXCEPT GAYS.” That misspelled slogan, emblazoned on the T-shirt of new student Misty Riggs (along with some puffy paint unicorns) is absolutely going to change her life. Never mind that this sophomore has little to no idea what she’s fighting for, this is going to be the year that Misty upgrades her status and achieves fame and fabulousness. Latching onto a gender fluid student in the grade above, Misty launches a half-baked campaign to get on the map, leading to a final, desperate bid for glory—the culmination of her burning desire to be recognized for something, for anything, no matter how she achieves it.

Like a Billion Likes. A darkly comic new musical.

Currently in development through Musical Theatre Factory (in residence at Playwrights Horizons). The piece will be further developed at the Johnny Mercer Writers Colony at Goodspeed Musicals, February 2019.
