It’s not too late to submit your application to the BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc. ®) Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop for the first-year composer and lyricist classes.
This prestigious workshop begins in September 2019 and will conclude in June 2020
Notable workshop alumni include EGOT recipient Robert Lopez (Frozen, The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q), Academy Award-winner Kristen Anderson Lopez (Frozen), and Tony Award-winners Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), Edward Kleban (A Chorus Line), Maury Yeston (Titanic, Grand Hotel, Nine), Jeff Marx (Avenue Q), Michael John LaChiusa (Queen of the Mist, Marie Christine, The Wild Party) and Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal).
The intent behind this workshop is to create an environment where aspiring lyricists, composers and librettists can learn the fundamentals of musical theatre under the guidance and supervision of experienced professionals to develop then fine-tune both their skills and craft. The workshop also tries to encourage members to experiment, take risks and absorb as much as they can during their time there. Workshop participants will be charged $27 for an identification badge, but all other sponsorship costs are covered in full by BMI.
