Black Writers Amplified Submissions
Black Writers Amplified is a project to immediately take steps toward significantly increased representation of Black writers in musical theatre and hold the American Theatre accountable through the creation of a resource for artistic directors, producers and other theatre creators to find and support new voices and emerging Black talent.
The album will feature approximately 2 dozen tracks from established and emerging Black musical theatre writers. Each participating writer will be selected by a panel of experienced industry professionals and will contribute one never-before recorded composition from a musical theatre piece to be included on the album. In addition to elevating the voices of black writers, the production of the album will also create opportunities for Black engineers, arrangers, orchestrators, musical directors, copyists, musical contractors and musicians, thus creating a platform for the entire Black theatrical music ecosystem.
Black Writers Amplified is a partnership between Black Theatre Coalition and Broadway Records.
