We loved having Georama in the festival! One of the things that was most appealing to us about NYMF was the opportunity to showcase our work in a prime location in a state of the art venue in the greatest theater city in the world. So many people in and outside of the industry got to see it and the response and the feedback we received was invaluable to Georama's continuing development. We were thrilled to have our show be part of the Festival and honored to walk away with some NYMF awards. We're currently exploring some exciting opportunities for the future of the show. Putting a musical on is hard work no matter how or where you do it. But one thing is for certain, Georama is better now than it was before the festival. And for that, we are supremely grateful.

$15 for 15 years

In 2018 we are delighted to be celebrating the 15th anniversary of the New York Musical Festival - that's 15 years of presenting hundreds of new musicals, and supporting thousands of artists! We want to mark this momentous occasion by revamping the Festival, and putting major changes in place to better support the musical theater community. But we need your help!

We have launched our $15 for 15 campaign to make this happen. What we raise will determine how far we can go with these new initiatives. This is where you come in! Please participate in this critical initiative and help shape the future of NYMF.

If just 4,000 people in our community of hundreds of thousands donate only $15 (in honor our 15th anniversary!), we will be able to achieve this goal. $15 for 15 years of new musicals. Of course, if you’re capable, donations of $150 or any other multiple of 15 would be profoundly welcome!

From its inception in 2004, NYMF grew quickly into the largest musical theater event in the country. We have presented over 445 new musicals, served over 1,000 writers, sold around 300,000 tickets, and commissioned writers to create work specifically for NYMF.

Increasingly, however, we’re focused less on size and more on making a bigger impact on the work we present and the artists we support. Our intention for 2018 is to restructure the Festival in a way that allows us to more actively engage with each show and its writing team, providing individualized artistic, administrative, fundraising, technical and marketing support. And we are committed to doing all of this while removing barriers to entry for our artists. 

Please help us make this possible!
