FALLING FORWARD - AN ORIGINAL MUSICAL tells the story of Meghan, a queer 27-year-old sculpture artist, who is packing up her New York City apartment after the worst year of her life. Meghan will be moving back in with her mom in Michigan, giving up her life as a struggling artist. However, packing up her apartment proves to be a noisy affair, as the objects of Meghan’s bedroom — a Bong, a Self-Help Book, a Family Portrait, a Vibrator, and more — come to life, forcing Meghan to reckon with her role in the events of her shitty year. A raucous send-up of Gen-Z/Millennial culture today, this story packs a punch of heart and larger-than-life theatricality as Meghan second-guesses herself through a fumbling search for security in our uncertain world. Falling Forward was selected as a finalist for The 2020 New York Musical Festival.
