Boogie Blues, by Marsha Meyers (librettist/lyricist) and Jim Owen (composer); and Avenue X, by John Jiler (librettist/lyricist) and Ray Leslee (composer).

The industry professionals who are critiquing the works-in-progress include lyricists Alan Bergman and Lynn Ahrens, composer Stephen Flaherty, composer/lyricist David Zippel and actor Jason Alexander.
