The New York Musical Theatre Festival, or NYMF, has been one of the city’s essential incubators for new musicals since 2004 and has offered first looks at many shows that have gone on to Broadway and Off Broadway success. Beloved musical hits such as Next to Normal, [title of show], Altar Boyz and The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World all got a crucial start at NYMF. Nearly a hundred shows have gone on to productions on Broadway and Off, in 48 states and more than 20 countries worldwide, and NYMF alumni have received a wide array of awards, including the Tony and the Pulitzer Prize. This year, the festival offers 22 full productions as well as concerts and readings. We’ll be tracking them as they try their fortunes.
