About

We are raising funds to record the album of the new, original song cycle A Never-Ending Line.

(To read in Spanish scroll down. Para leer en español ir más abajo.)

A Never-Ending Line is a new song cycle composed by Jaime Lozano (Tlatelolco, Myths, Lighting Strikes Twice, The Yellow Brick Road, Children of Salt). Lozano, named Broadway’s “next big thing” by Lin Manuel-Miranda, developed the piece with a group of female lyricists (Lindsey Erin Anderson, Neena Beber, Lauren Epsenhart, Sami Horneff, Victoria Kühne, Lisa Mongillo, Marina Pires, Noemi de la Puente, and June Rachelson-Ospa).

Inspired by his upbringing in a strong matriarchy, Lozano conceived the show as a tribute to the women in his life. The songs, performed by a company of four, explore the unique challenges women face in society today on the journey to find happiness, love, and meaning in their lives. The themes of acceptance, hope, and friendship are universal reminders that no matter who we are or where we come from, our lives are all connected through the shared experience of womanhood.

The show made its world premiere in France at Broadway au Carré, the leading American musical theatre concert and open-mic series in Paris, directed by Lisandro Nesis. Arrangements by Lozano and Jesús Altamira were musically directed by Géraldine Anello. This world premiere cast included Kaïna Blada, Florenica Cuenca, Alyssa Landry, and Perle Solvès.

A Never-Ending Line is now coming to the Americas! On May 27th, the show will make its Mexican Debut at the Festival Alfonsino in Monterrey, Mexico entirely translated into Spanish.

The show will then move to New York City for a one-night only performance at the famed Metropolitan Room on July 24th at 9:30pm, and, soon after, will open Off Broadway at The Players Theatre for a seven-week run between August 3rd and September 17th, 2017.

Here’s where we need YOU!

Before the show transfers to New York, we hope to record an album with some of the best performers and musicians in the world, both in English and in Spanish. We aim to partner with a Women’s Organization and donate many of the proceeds from the album to aid women in need and support women’s rights.

Some of the greatest Broadway performers are already on board and we are so excited to be collaborating with them: Betsy Wolfe (Waitress, The Last Five Years), Kerry Butler (Catch Me If You Can, Xanadu, Rock of Ages), Julia Murney (Wicked, The Wild Part), Emily Skeggs (Fun Home), Jennie Harney (The Color Purple), Hannah Shankman (Wicked, Les Miserables), Arielle Jacobs (Australia Aladdin, Wicked), Whitney Bashor (The Bridges of Madison County), among other amazing performers.

We have already been given the tremendous gift of a recording studio- the best in all of the Americas, Victoria Records in Mexico- to record all of the instrumental tracks. However, that’s only a small piece of the puzzle. We are looking for funding so that we may rightfully provide compensation to all of the performers, musicians, and artists involved, as well as to cover some minor production costs we know will incur along the way. Some of these costs include: 

-A recording studio in New York City to record English vocals with Broadway performers.
 -A recording studio in Mexico City to record Spanish vocals with local performers -Fees for singers and musicians.
 -Printing of sheet music. 
 -Graphic design fees for the album artwork. 
 -Studio rentals for rehearsals. 
 -Professional sound engineers. 
 -Mixing and Mastering fees. 
 -CD manufacturing costs. 
 -Legal fees and union requirements.

With your help, we will be able to cover these costs and create an album that will do a lot of good for women across the country and even around the world.

Estamos recaudando fondos para la grabación de el disco del nuevo musical/ciclo de canciones A Never-Ending Line (Una Historia Sin Final).

A Never-Ending Line es un nuevo ciclo de canciones compuesto por Jaime Lozano (Tlatelolco, Myths, Lighting Strikes Twice, The Yellow Brick Road, Children of Salt). Lozano, es considerado como el "siguiente gran nombre en Broadway" por el creador del musical Hamilton, Lin Manuel-Miranda. Lozano desarrolló la pieza con un grupo de mujeres letristas (Lindsey Erin Anderson, Neena Beber, Lauren Epsenhart, Sami Horneff, Victoria Kühne, Lisa Mongillo, Marina Pires, Noemi de la Puente y June Rachelson-Ospa).

Inspirado al ser criado en un fuerte matriarcado, Lozano concibió el musical como un tributo a esas mujeres en su vida. Las canciones, interpretadas por 4 actrices en el musical, exploran los retos que la mujer debe afrontar en la sociedad en la actualidad en su viaje por encontrar la felicidad, el amor y el significado en sus vidas. Temas universales como aceptación, esperanza y amistad nos recuerdan que no importa quienes seamos o de donde venimos, nuestras vidas están todas conectadas a través de una línea infinita.

El show tuvo su estreno mundial en París, Francia para Broadway au Carré, dirigido por Lisandro Nesis. Arreglos musicales por Lozano y Jesús Altamira fueron dirigidos por Géraldine Anello. El internacional reparto estuvo formado por Kaïna Blada, Florenica Cuenca, Alyssa Landry y Perle Solvès.

¡A Never-Ending Line llega ahora al continente americano! En Mayo 27, tendrá su estreno en español en México como parte del Festival Alfonsino en Monterrey.

Posteriormente el musical sera estrenado en la ciudad de Nueva York, primero en una exclusiva versión concierto en el prestigiado Metropolitan Room la noche del 24 de Julio, e inmediatamente después, con una corta temporada de siete semanas Off Broadway en el The Players Theatre en el Greenwich Village del 3 de Agosto al 17 de septiembre del 2017.

¡Y necesitamos TU apoyo!

Antes de que el musical llegue a Nueva York, planeamos grabar el disco concepto con algunos de las mejores actrices de teatro musical de Estados Unidos y México, el objetivo es grabar un disco doble en inglés y en español, el disco en inglés con cantantes de Broadway y el disco en español con estrellas de teatro musical y televisión de México. Estamos en pláticas con algunas organizaciones sin fines de lucro para que parte de lo recaudado en la venta del disco sea donado para apoyar causas relacionadas a la mujer.

Algunas de las actrices y cantantes más importantes de México y Latinoamérica serán parte de este disco: Fernanda Castillo (El Señor de los Cielos, Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar), Mónica Huarte (Mentiras, Avenue Q), Kika Edgar (Mentiras, Annie, La Novicia Rebelde), Lisset (El Joven Frankenstein, Fiebre del Sábado por la Noche), Regina Blandón (Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar), Lola Cortés (Peter Pan, Mentiras, La Bella y la Bestia), y muchas otras maravillosas artistas.

Hemos sido muy privilegiados al recibir un gran apoyo por parte de Victoria Records, considerado uno de los mejores estudios de grabación a nivel mundial, ubicado en Monterrey, México y estaremos ahí grabando la música para posteriormente grabar voces en la Ciudad de México y Nueva York. 

El apoyo de Victoria Records es una muy importante pieza en este rompecabezas, pero es solo una pieza por lo cual necesitamos tu apoyo para cubrir algunos otros gastos relacionados con el proceso de hacer estos discos:

-Estudio de grabación en la ciudad de Nueva York para grabar a las cantantes en inglés.
 -Estudio de grabación en la Ciudad de México para grabar a las cantantes en español.-Incentivos para músicos y cantantes participantes.-Arreglos, orquestaciones y preparación del material musical y partituras.-Diseño de arte del disco-Renta de estudios para ensayos.   -Honorarios ingenieros de grabación.
-Mezcla y pasterización del disco.
-Impresión y tiraje de los discos.
-Cuotas de trámites legales.

Con tu ayuda, seremos capaces de cubrir estos costos y creas un disco que esperemos pueda inspirar a muchas mujeres alrededor del mundo.
