At Barrington Stage, if Labor Day is about to arrive, so is William Finn and a whole stageful of new musical theatre masterpieces. In his annual grab bag of the year’s most promising new composers and lyricists there are always gems that resurface later. He may not have a crystal ball, but his ability to see talent in emerging artists is amazing.

So let it be noted that Barrington Stage Company’s Musical Theatre Lab (under the direction of Artistic Head of the MTL William Finn, Artistic Director Julianne Boyd and Managing Director Tristan Wilson) will present the sixth edition of Songs by Ridiculously Talented Composers and Lyricists You Probably Don’t Know But Should… which will play Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3 at 8pm at Barrington Stage, 30 Union Street.

Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist William Finn (Falsettos, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) narrates this fresh, fun introduction to new voices in musical theatre. Direction is by Drama League Directors Project Musical Directing Fellow Shakina Nayfack (Assistant Director BSC’s The Game and Mormons, Mothers and Monsters).
