Name: Jeffrey Schmelkin
What is your current project?
Right now, I’m currently producing my new musical “Untitled Time”!
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
I’m currently producing my musical at The Midtown International Theatre Festival. This festival is an amazing fit for my production because they have a wonderful theater which is the perfect size for the place that the show is at right now. Because this is now the show’s second production (on a slightly larger scale than the last), this is the perfect opportunity to see how different types of audiences react to the work. Additionally, I’ve made some great friends with some of my fellow playwrights/composers/producers!
What’s next for you?
My goal is to get “Untitled Time” off-Broadway within the upcoming years.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
I recently saw the tour of Fun Home! The music is absolutely amazing and the show as a whole is just incredibly powerful—one of the many reasons I love live theatre.
Any advice for your peers?
Just keep persevering and let me know all about your upcoming projects!
