Anne and Will

Book by Sandra Hochman and Cindy Polich 

Lyrics by Sandra Hochman 

Music by Galt MacDermot and Gary William Friedman


A staged reading of a new musical by Pulitzer-prize nominated poet Sandra Hochman and local playwright Cindy Polich, with new music by Grammy-winning composer of Hair, Galt MacDermot, and Tony-nominated composer Gary William Friedman.  Much has been written about William Shakespeare and his illustrious career.  Less is known about the women in his life. Anne and Will imagines that four women were instrumental in putting Shakespeare on the path to literary greatness – his mother, his wife, Queen Elizabeth, and a plucky barmaid who may have saved his life in a treacherous London.  

This 90-minute musical is performed with no intermission.
