THE MUSIC SOUNDS DIFFERENT TO ME NOW
Directed by Jacole Kitchen
Award-winning writer Bil Wright’s The Music Sounds Different to Me Now is not a musical, but you still leave singing.

They step into their stories, funny and poignant – from auditioning for Francis Ford Coppola to playing Cleopatra’s handmaiden in a plastic wig. Featured are NYC dancer/choreographers Kim Grier (artistic director, Rod Rodgers Dance Company), Ellis Wood (artistic director, Ellis Wood Dance) and original music by composer Omari Abdul-Alim. Award-winning writer Bil Wright’s The Music Sounds Different to Me Now is not a musical, but you still leave Jody’s studio singing.
