Musical Theater Factory is thrilled to welcome you to our virtual salon hosted by Troy Anthony, with special guest Alex Petti. During this salon we want to invite musical theater makers of excellence to present work that is dismantling oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation through powerful and joyful story in song.
During the virtual salon, we welcome artists from across the nation (and around the world) to perform their new and radical music theater work live from their homes, or to share a video of a short performance. Each artist will have about 5 minutes to share.
Alex Petti is a writer from Massachusetts who grew up as a pop punk rocker. Though his dreams of headlining Warped Tour have ended, the energy of the genre still infuses his music. His work includes The Trouble With Dead Boyfriends (Best Score – SheNYC 2018, Best in Fest Premiere Premieres! 2017), and his autobiographical show, Alex Petti And The Nervous Wrecks Present The Hometown Tour (Ad Hoc Collective – 2018) and Wash The Color Out. Alex is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon, a composer in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop, and a proud Dad to his cat, Sonia.
We ask that everyone takes special care in uplifting and supporting each other. This is inclusive of only offering criticism when it is asked for and being respectful to gender identities. We seek to dismantle oppressive ideologies towards collective liberation – by participating, you agree to respect one another. In the event of unintentional harm, we support active engagement in harm reduction.
You do not have to share in order to attend. Please register to share or to participate as a supportive audience member. We can’t wait to see you there!
Please Note: “I Want to Share” tickets will close at 8pm on the Wednesday prior to the event, and “I Want to Watch” tickets will close at 6pm on the evening of the event.
