It’s obvious theater is big in Chicago, really big. But few people know Chicago is proving ground for many plays and musicals before they head off to Broadway or on tour. Well hold on to your seats, as Chicago is home to a new venture to bring original musical theater works to life. Eight experienced theater folk have formed FWD Theatre Project (Festival of Works in Development), and this esteemed group is producing a one-time concert at City Winery Chicago (1200 W Randolph Street) on Monday, September 22nd (sorry folks, it’s already sold out, that should speak to the excitement surrounding this project).

This concert, LaunchingFWD!, will be FWD Theatre Project’s inaugural event and will present selections from five new musicals in the works.  These musicals were selected from over 220 submissions in response to a nationwide search.

There are several things about FWD Theatre Project that are really exciting.  Not only are they seeking to discover and develop brand new musicals but they’ll be produced by some of the already existing, fabulous theaters here in Chicago.  More than that, the audience will have a chance to be part of the creative process through discussion, analytical exploration, and education.
