Great Reviews for What I’m Failing to Learn workshop run

The four week, eight performance workshop run of What I’m failing to Learn ends with great momentum. Strong blogger reviews, full houses and an opportunity to see the show develop over a month bodes well for AMSPE to further develop the show. Congratulations to Schuyler, the band and dancers and crew for a fantastic workshop!

Some quick reviews:

“Tween phenom singer songwriter Schuyler Iona Press is presenting a workshop production of her new multimedia musical at 13th Street Rep Theater. This production is a work in progress. It is a unique opportunity to witness a young artist polish her work. Ms. Press has accumulated many an accolade in her young career. One expects many more are to come.”

“Fourteen-year-old rising singer/songwriter/actress Schuyler Iona Press captivates those of all ages with her deceptively simple melodies and introspective lyrics.”

“WIFTL” is a brilliant mash up of Schuyler’s vivid and unique song-scapes, traditional musical theater archetypes, dancing and a sub plot which unfolds via multi media that is enhanced in the cleverest of ways by a cast whose talent is bursting at the seams. It’s beautifully directed by Casey Fraser Press & Darren Press”

“Think a young, female Jonathan Larson meets a young Alanis Morissette, and you can get some idea of Schuyler’s musicality, voice, storytelling, observation and overall promise. With a song like “I Am Today,” which she penned when she was less than 10, you hear an example of a memorable show tune…one that you yearn to see included in a full scale musical that may one day come to fruition. It wouldn’t be too much to expect from her!”

“The real reason to go see WHAT I’M FAILING TO LEARN is to get in on the ground floor of what can only become a major artist. Cement shoes couldn’t stop the multi-talented Press from soaring to the heights of success. Catch her on the way up, and you can say “I knew her when.”
