…HER’S A QUEEN is Neal Medlyn’s fifth pop-star opus and the first installment in a two-part Britney Spears/Hannah Montana extravaganza, built around the idea and music of Britney Spears, purity, and nonsexual touch. Additional items involved include overlapping stories and bears and abstinence and unwashed hair and dance moves and knives and snakes and laptops and cuddle parties and babies.
The show is being presented in an early form at TBA. It features Carmine Covelli and musical contributions from Farris Craddock and is being written in consultation and under the supervision of Kenny Mellman.
…HER’S A QUEEN is commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop’s Commissioning and Creative Residency Program with support from the Jerome Foundation, The Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency) the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Jerome Robbins Foundation.
