Ovation Award Winner for Best Music/Lyrics


In June 2011, we mounted a workshop production of Gregory Nabours’ original song cycle, The Trouble with Words. Despite it being unfinished, underfunded, and severely restricted by a small space, it ran for three months (instead of the originally planned three weeks) to sold out houses and critical acclaim. Our little project went on to win Best Musical at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, and the coveted Ovation Award for Best Original Music and Lyrics.

Now we’re giving The Trouble with Words a fully-realized production in a properly equipped venue with a beautiful set and costumes. We’ve reconstructed our creative team with an impressive group of award-winning theatre professionals. With substantial improvements to the lyrics and music (including five new songs), the theme of people struggling to connect as they are brought together and pulled apart by words is stronger than ever.
