INTRODUCING RENASCENCE  Now available for licensing 

We are excited to announce the launch of Renascence, music by Australia’s Carmel Dean and book by Dick Scanlan.

A poetic musical reverie from the works of Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Renascence is a theatrical exploration of identity and artistry through the poems of Pulitzer Prize-winning, Edna St. Vincent Millay, featuring music by Carmel Dean (music director for If/Then and American Idiot on Broadway), and a book by Tony nominee Dick Scanlan.

At the age of 19, Millay writes a profoundly powerful poem, “Renascence,” catapulting her to stardom and releasing her from her rural, humble beginnings into a bohemian, reckless, and unconventional urban lifestyle. Captivating both men and women with her unapologetic sensuality and frank intellect -  she becomes the “original riot grrrl” of her time. Originally created by The Transport Group in New York City, Renascence follows the early years of this artist’s life and invites its performers and audience to sit in this poet’s soul and view humanity and nature as if through her window.

We had a chat with Carmel Dean about Renascence...take a look!
