In a group email, the singing actress wrote, "I can finally announce that...(drumroll, please!).... The show I wrote, Unfinished Business, has been chosen for the illustrious NYMF 2015!! The New York Musical Theatre Festival!! Yahooo! The show will have 2 Special Event presentations in July!"

Performances are scheduled for July 22 and 25 at 5 PM at Theater 3, located at 311 W. 43rd Street.

Mason previously presented the work at CAP21.

Mason’s solo play, according to press notes, is a "tribute to her good friend and colleague, Brian Lasser." Lasser was a composer/lyricist and won an Emmy for his song "Hold Me." He also was Mason’s music director before his death in 1992.

Mason collaborated with Barry Kleinbort and Christopher Denny on Unfinished Business, which explores "sixteen years of discovery, friendship, laughter, music, and heartache through the songbook of Brian Lasser."

In an earlier statement Mason said, “He [Brian] was not only a pivotal person in my life, he was a songwriter who's songs still speak to the human condition in a very human way. For the past 20 years, since he passed away, I have wanted to do a show with his music.”
