SHE SINGS ME HOME

SHE SINGS ME HOME

Watch Now

SHE SINGS ME HOME is Montague's flagship musical: a modern queer-, trans-, and Black-led story in the Black American musical tradition about young love and alliances in a mental health institution’s under-21 ward and was part of the Page to Stage Festival at the Kennedy Center in November 2020. 

 

The musical then had a successful concert at NYC's own The Green Room 42 on February 6, 2023, as well as a full workshop at Round House Theatre in Bethesda, MD as part of their 2nd Annual National Capital New Play Festival from May 1-6, 2023. Angela Ortiz and Chris Bulle-Goyri are the current arrangers of the musical.

OTHER WORKS IN-DEVELOPMENT:

RHAPSODY IN SUNFLOWER YELLOW

This Black-, trans-, and queer-led musical shows the breakdown on the protagonist – “Arty” - as they seek to write a musical about celebrated painter Vincent van Gogh but struggle with their own demons. “Arti” talks to “Vincent” as a friend, as a god, and as a figment of their own despair. It talks about artistic struggles with wanting notoriety, legitimacy, and personal agency; trauma of all kinds; and problems with love, friendship, and mental health. It uses more of traditional musical theatre styles but is still rooted in jazz, blues, gospel, rock, R&B, and soul music.

HOW BABY AND THE ANCESTORS ATTEMPTED A REVOLUTION

This piece has Black, transgender, and queer characters and centers around the protagonist - Baby - who seeks for a purpose with the help of ancestors Marsha P. Johnson, Dr. Reverend Prathia Hall, and Audre Lorde. This show will use musical genres rooted in jazz, blues, gospel, R&B, rap, and soul music. They will develop the piece further as a MacDowell Fellow in July 2024.

INTERVENTION OF THE Nth KIND

This show is still in its infancy, but it's about immortals coming from the sky and killing serial rapists and sexual abusers, confronting the audience about rape culture, accountability, science vs faith, and the need for justice before anyone dies.
