ROOFTOP WRITERS INITIATIVE
WHY DO YOU WRITE?
SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS
COULD BE ONE
OF 100 PEOPLE
2 FREE TICKETS.
Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG underscores the profound impact that emerging young writers can make. It is in this spirit that we’ve partnered with the Stephen Sondheim Foundation, American Theater Wing's Jonathan Larson Grant, and American Express® to launch the Rooftop Writers Initiative.
Are you a writer under 35 years old? If so, we want to hear from you — “the movers, shapers, and names in tomorrow’s papers.”
What motivates you to write? Tell us via the form below. Get creative and you could be one of 100 young writers we select to receive two complimentary tickets to a special MERRILY performance on February 29th; after the performance you will get to attend an audience talkback with the cast!
Entries will be accepted through January 31.
SUBMISSIONS FOR THE ROOFTOP WRITERS INITIATIVE ARE NOW CLOSED.
Keep an eye on your email to see if you've been selected to receive tickets to this special performance of Merrily We Roll Along. Thank you for sharing your creativity, and stay tuned for more exciting opportunities in the future!
