4. To be an integrally creative part of the oldest performing arts group at Columbia
Former creative team members include Rogers, Hammerstein, and Hart, screenwriter I.A.L Diamond, Thoroughly Modern Millie composer Jeanine Tesori, and writers for the TV shows Cosby, Murphy Brown, Friends, and The West Wing.
3. To challenge yourself to create something of this magnitude
This will almost certainly be the single project you have worked the most on in your life, and the time and professionalism will show.
2. Because the field is wide-open and you have a great chance to make your mark
There will be very few (if any) returning creative team members this year, which means 2-3 new writers, a new director, new composer(s)/lyricist(s), a new art director, a new choreographer, and new producer(s)!
1. Because it's really fucking fun
Most fun you can have at Columbia, swear to God.
