October Factory Salon
Our monthly Factory Salons unite us to celebrate art, musical theatre, and community. Whether it’s a full performance with background singers, a quick melody plucked at the piano, a concept you sprouted over breakfast, or a design you’ve been developing for years, we’ll meet you wherever you’re at in the creative process.
You’ll not want to miss it. Michelle Rodriguez Puerto Rican singer, songwriter and musical theater composer Michelle J.

She has received support from Ars Nova, New York Theater Workshop, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts and the University of Chicago. Musicals include East o’, West o’!
