The NEO 9 concert, which begins at 7:30 PM, includes songs by Julianne Wick Davis (Southern Comfort), Carmel Dean (A Girl Called Vincent), Kait Kerrigan (The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown), Rebekah Greer Melocik (The Last Queen of Canaan) and Georgia Stitt (The Water).
NEO, an acronym for "New, Emerging, Outstanding," "celebrates songwriters primed to pen the next generation of musicals," according to press notes. "Since the first NEO concert 9 years ago — recorded by England's JAY Records — musical theatre fans and York supporters eagerly anticipate each incarnation. The York Theatre Company has recently embarked on a new yearlong mentoring program that brings together established writers and upcoming producing partners to help encourage the growth of new works."
In this new NEO format, which began in 2012, the concert kicks off a year of activity for each writer. Each one will receive a fully funded developmental reading in the course of the year and is assigned an established producing mentor.
The York Theatre is located at the Citicorp Building on East 54th Street (just east of Lexington Avenue). For more information and tickets, call (212) 935-5824, ext. 215 or visit YorkTheatre.org.
