According to press materials, A Woman of Will "is the musical adventure of a writer in crisis — both personal and professional. Hired to finish the lyrics of a Broadway-bound musical version of The Merchant of Venice, Kate faces the demands of an unrelenting deadline in addition to important decisions about her marriage and future. “ The new piece features 17 original songs by composer and lyricist Joel Silberman, in collaboration with a book by McBroom herself.
Below, Silberman, McBroom and musical director Sam Davis are seen during a rehearsal for A Woman of Will at the Chelsea rehearsal studios on West 26th Street in New York City.
