Let us pay for a developmental reading of your new musical! Created to nurture producers as well as writers, TRU VOICES seeks producer-driven projects, and also matches writers with producers. Each reading is followed by a “Dollars and Sense” panel discussion with prominent New York producers, general managers and artistic directors focusing on potential venues, marketing and budgeting of the work. According to TRU executive Director Bob Ost, “TRU welcomes a diverse range of new works, as long as they are full length (minimum of 80 minutes), and have not been performed in front of a paying audience in the New York area. We are equally interested in commercial works and the non-traditional and unconventional, and we have a special interest in finding works with multi-cultural significance.”
Submissions are open for the musicals series now through August 20th, 2018 (with a one-week extension to August 27th for TRU members and shows with a producer attached).

About the Company: TRU Voices Series
TRU was founded in 1992 to promote a spirit of cooperation and support within the general theater community by providing information and a variety of entertainment-related services and resources that strengthen the business capabilities of producing organizations, individual producers, self-producing artists and other theater professionals. The company holds monthly seminars on a wide range of subjects important to theatrical producers conducted by panels of experts from both the commercial and not-for-profit worlds. TRU also publishes a print newsletter and a monthly email community newsletter. In addition, TRU served as the umbrella organization for a co-production by several of its member companies as a part of the first annual New York Fringe Festival. From that experience, the organization has expanded its production efforts by creating the TRU VOICES New Play Reading Series and the TRU VOICES New Musicals Reading Series. In 2001, TRU began giving annual scholarships to The Commercial Theater Institute, to encourage the development of aspiring producers, and most recently created a Producer Mentoring Program whose mentors are among the most prominent producers and general managers in New York theater.
