Crossover: A New Pop Musical
Green Light Group Productions (Producers: Chelsea Cylinder and Danielle Moore)
September 24-September 26
$5 – $10
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 contestants 101 (Regina “Reggie” Carlyle, a soul-singing Stanford dropout), 13 (Hallie Harper, a country sweetheart on a mission), 69 (KC Parker, a wannabe rock goddess and the daughter of a famous guitarist), and 78 (Maxine “Max” Green, an electro-pop starlet on the rise) 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: 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 and presented by Green Light Group Productions (GLG), a production firm devoted to the creative development and production of new works across stage, screen, and new media. GLG specializes in the creation of new musical theatre and content that challenges the form.
