Come take an unforgettable journey through the unpredictable streets of New York City and the even more unpredictable mind of a young teenager. Treading an exciting line between musical theater and concert, ‘What I’m Failing to Learn’ features award winning 16 year old singer/songwriter Schuyler Iona Press and a cast of phenomenal musicians and dancers. No need to take notes, there will be no test.
Some quick reviews from the workshop run:
“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.”
“Brilliant mash up of Schuyler’s unique song-scapes, traditional musical theater archetypes, & a sub plot which unfolds via multimedia in the cleverest of ways. Beautifully directed by C. 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!”
