CROSSOVER is back and better than ever, and this time, it has been filmed LIVE!

Meet Crossover, the newest singing competition to hit the airwaves with a streaming-era twist: the competing artists must prove that they’re adept at both writing and performing across different genres in order to claim the title of Crossover Champion. When four women tie in the regional competition, they reluctantly opt to compete on the national broadcast as a group: Four-Way Tie. As they navigate the ups and downs of sudden fame, they learn more about themselves and each other than they ever thought possible. CROSSOVER’s megamix-style score, featuring influences from dance pop, country, R&B, and rap, reinforces the show’s message: love between women, romantic or otherwise, is something to sing about.

CROSSOVER first premiered completely virtually as part of last year’s Fringe Festival. After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback, the musical was picked up by a New York festival and transferred to New York City in December. Now, the production team is thrilled to bring it back to Fringe this year. CROSSOVER has been totally revamped, and its new components create an exciting cinematic experience that you don’t want to miss. The filmed stage musical will be screened at a live, outdoor rooftop movie night, complete with refreshments and a surprise interactive component. The show will also stream digitally for those who are unable to make it in-person.

CROSSOVER: A New Pop Musical has an original book and score written by Danielle E. Moore and is directed by Amanda Pasquini. The show is produced by Chelsea Cylinder and Danielle E. Moore. It is presented by Green Light Group Productions in partnership with the William Way Community Center and Friends Select School.
