For generations, musical theatre writers have come to New York City to change the world. "Once Upon A Time In New York City" is about the people who have changed THEM. This concert will feature musical theatre writers- who are ages 18 to 80, who were born in Kansas City or San Francisco or London, who are established and who are emerging- each writing a brand new song about someone who has changed their idea of New York City.
