The new musical by Larson Award-winning writers Scott Burkell (book/lyrics) and Paul Loesel (music) is directed by Joe Calarco and based on the 2001 novel by Mark Dunn.

Here's how it's billed: "In this compelling and smart new musical, the island of Nollop is thrown into chaos when letters fall one by one from the epitaph on a statue of a revered historical figure in the town square. Taking it as a sign, the local government forbids the use of each letter as it falls. As infractions are met with harsher and harsher punishments, one brave woman leads the fight to save the English language from shrinking into prehistoric grunts."

Other members of the creative team include music supervisor Dominick Amendum (Wicked), music director Jack Beetle and stage manager Jason Kaiser. Casting is by Cindi Rush Casting, and Matt Schicker/Show Shepherd Consulting is the line producer for Third Coast Creative.

LMNOP will receive a developmental production at TUTS Underground in April 2015.
