blogging on how McClain wrote a musical and put it on film. Now he has written a stage musical that was accepted into the New York Musical Theater Festival (NYMF).
"NYMF is basically the Sundance Film Festival for musical theater and my entry is a huge honor," McClain told mikemcguff.com. "There are several interesting things about it, namely I have cast my primarily teen show here in Houston and a whole gaggle of people are going to New York for two weeks for the festival. Our amateurs will be competing against New York professionals."
He says it is a David vs Goliath thing.
The show is called Kissless. The description is:
An awkward misfit is forced to live with an uber-jock and his quirky family over summer break. An inconvenient love develops, threatening the rigid social structure of Forest Glen High School. Kissless's score bounces from pop to rock to traditional Broadway to country ... with a little Glee glitter on top. This production features a cast of Texas teenagers, descending upon the Big Apple with stars in their eyes, just enough money for a fake ID and an "I Heart NY" tattoo, and every intention of rocking your world.
