Gag Order Lifted: Big News for Vote!



I'm so excited to finally reveal to you the product of all our hard work this past winter. Theatre Under the Stars in Houston has optioned VOTE! for their Educational program ACT @ TUTS! This September 15-18, there will be a big budget, big cast, big orchestra, fully choreographed production in at the beautiful Hobby Center for the Performing Arts


Past productions have included 13, Tommy and the Stephen Schwartz Project. The cast of 30 and full orchestra will be comprised entirely of TEENAGERS aged 13-18! (And you KNOW how I feel about kids singing!) 


It feels very full circle to presenting the largest production to-date of this show in the place where Steven and I met & started writing together exactly ten years ago. And as much as I keep picking up and moving to new spots on the map, my time at Rice and in Houston was one of the most important growing pains phases of my life. And truly set me on the path I've been traveling in my life ever since. It's been 5 years since I've been back to Houston. I can't wait for this Homecoming and to show my amazing Texas friends what Steven and I have been hard at work on for so long now. 


We came very close to giving up on this show. And now, instead, it will have a whole new life. I can't wait to get to see it-- they're bringing us in! So friends in Houston, put the week of Sept 15-18th (I'll be there a few days before that as well) in your calendars. I will want to see you all. And I hope you'll all come see VOTE! You can check out the music here. Some of you may see a bit of yourselves in parts of this show.
