ITEM: Pitch me a new theatre musical any time between now and 1 April 2014 and get detailed feedback from someone with over a decade of experience advising Broadway and West End producers. I’ll read a cover letter, synopsis, up to 30 pages of script and listen to up to 10 songs (max. 45 mins) and then provide feedback by email within 1 month tops. I can’t promise to recommend the winning pitch to a producer, but there’s always the possibility that I’ll offer. An unusual present for the budding composers and lyricists in your life – or even a school music department or club!
