A workshop performance of a new musical by MSM Musical Theatre student Jarrett Winters Morley (BM ’20).
Set against the backdrop of 1940’s New York City, and inspired by Shakespeare’s King Lear, Morningside is an original musical that tells the story of Maximillian Earl, a returning soldier who is struggling with his frightening memories of the recent war as his life and his business spiral out of control. Earl’s battle with his post-traumatic stress and his daughter’s scheme to take control of the company are interrupted as an unexpected player enters the fray.
