After winning the prize for “Best Feature Film” at the SoCal Film Awards and “Best Comedy” of the Alternative Film Festival, Your musical is CANCELED: The musical is heading to New York for its East Coast premiere and to receive another round of laurels as an official selection of the New York Independent Film Festival. After recording and shooting the film in five different states during the lockdown, it will premiere in New York on Sunday, June 13 at 1 p.m. at the Producers Club in Times Square.
“Your musical is canceled: the musical!” is an independent musical that follows a struggling theater company in the context of Covid-19, the quarantine traps and the BLM social movement. Comedy trio Whitefish, Montana, Erica Von Kleist, Mikey Winn and David Blair, sought to create a “comedic snapshot of the times we live in” and depict the theatrical community’s struggles in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic.
The musical follows the cast, crew and band from a small regional theater company who are summoned to a Zoom meeting by the theater’s shady benefactor Mr. Muncheon to discuss the show’s fate following the lockdown of COVID-19. While waiting for him to sign, they deplore the quarantine, unemployment and the state of the world. Will the theater survive or will their families be torn apart indefinitely? Through laughter, tears and spontaneous musical numbers, they will discover that the only way to navigate this new world is to stay together.
Given that the musical film features a cast, crew, and star group, most of whom have been featured on Broadway, it is only fitting that the film heads to New York as the live theater begins to do. his return after the pandemic. .
