DEPRESSION: THE MUSICAL (In Late Development): www.depressionthemusical.com

Song demos from Marianne's semi-autobiographical pop-rock musical, Depression: The Musical, which debuted at The New York International Fringe Festival in August 2014.

THE MAIDEN WITHOUT HANDS (In Early Development)

Once upon a time...a young indie rock guitarist doesn’t quite fit into the fairy tale world she lives in. When her father makes a deal with the devil in order to get rich, she is the one who must pay the price. How will she find her place in this world now that she has lost the means to express herself through music? Will she become another fairy tale cliche? Find out in this feminist rock-and-roll adaptation of a classic Grimm’s fairy tale.

STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER: A MUSICAL THEATER SONG CYCLE (In Development)

"Strong Female Character” is a musical theater song cycle that takes fictional female characters—like Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz and Marge Gunderson from Fargo—out of the context of their original stories and re-imagines them with new storylines and musical numbers.

What song would Dorothy Gale be singing if she were still living with Aunt Em and Uncle Henry at age 39? What kinds of investigations was Marge Gunderson up to at age 10? Just a couple of the questions explored in this musical theater meets feminist-take-on-pop-culture mashup! 

Other characters featured: Princess Leia (Star Wars), Ana García (Real Women Have Curves), Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games), Esther & Mayme (Intimate Apparel), Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones' Diary), Veronica Sawyer (Heathers), and Hermione Granger (Harry Potter).
