PIE EATER

Music & Lyrics: Derek Roland

Book:  Keith Varney

 

 

Stevie Pinenut dreams of being a world champion competitive eater. But the title already belongs to the most feared ninja food-warrior in the world, Kumahara, who’ll stop at nothing to stay on top. Stevie teams up with a gang of misfit competitors hungry to save the sport, even if it means selling out! In order to beat Kumahara, Stevie will have to overcome the betrayal of the woman he loves and his own personal demons. With help from his friends, a passionate French chef, a dancing banana therapist, and good old rock ‘n’ roll, he just might have what it takes to climb the mountain, beat the bear, take down Kumahara and his Sensei, hit the high note and get back the girl.

HOT MESS IN MANHATTAN

Book:  Cait Doyle & Meggie Doyle

Music & Lyrics:  Adam Gwon, Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk , Ryan Scott Oliver, Julianne Wick Davis , Gaby Alter, Nick Blaemire, Sam Carner and Derek Gregor, Ryan Cunningham and Joshua Salzman , Drew Gasparini, Michael Mahler  &  Keith Varney 

 

A high-heeled, low-brow musical comedy following one 20-something woman trying to conquer the big city the only way she knows how: the Way of Carrie Bradshaw. Armed with a score featuring a dozen of musical theater's hottest new composers and one worn-out pair of Blahniks, she confronts her greatest fear: if 'Sex and the City' lied, then what's to become of a Hot Mess in Manhattan?"

"More audacious is Keith Varney’s “A Song to Sing(pod),” a sardonic number about sponsoring children in Third-World countries, complete with a Bunraku-style puppet child. Varney ventures into a kind of “Book of Mormon” irreverence" Backstage.com
