A full workshop/showcase production of "ONE FOR MY BABY," a Broadway-bound musical, based on the songs of Harold Arlen

ONE FOR MY BABY is a sexy new song-and-dance book musical based on the songs of the legendary Harold Arlen, celebrating the Golden Age of Big-City Nightlife.  ONE FOR MY BABY will be directed and choreographed by Scott Thompson, with arrangements and musical direction by Fred Barton.  We both have collaborated on the book.

Harold Arlen is the legendary composer of such famous songs as "Stormy Weather," "That Old Black Magic," "Over The Rainbow," and "The Man That Got Away."  Unlike his peers (Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, Kern), Harold Arlen has yet to receive his due on the Great White Way, and we're passionate about changing that.  We think his time is long overdue.  

After recording our demo CD, starring Anika Noni Rose, Carolee Carmello, and Gavin Creel, and attracting the enthusiasm of major Broadway producers, we are now ready to fund the all-important full Workshop production which will propel the show to Broadway.

For an unprecedented figure of under $100,000, we will produce a FULL PRESENTATION, including choreography, musicians, and a full cast that will include major Broadway headliners.  The workshop will be co-produced by the One For My Baby LLC, and The Broadway Musicals Company, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation – so your contribution here will be TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.

ONE FOR MY BABY is a cinematic song-and-dance extravaganza, which we intend to showcase in its fully-realized form.  With the producers' interest we've cultivated, and the outstanding connections we've made, your contributions (matched by Broadway producers) will facilitate this Workshop, on our way to the ultimate Broadway production!

Please consider a contribution large or small, if you love top-notch show music and great big Broadway song-and-dance musicals as much as we do – have we got a show for you!
