NYCPlaywrights September 2012 Play of the Month: THE LOST MELODY by Bridgette Portman

Thanks to Bridgette Portman and cast members Tim Lueke and David Lamberton for their great work.

Bridgette Portman on the play

This play was partially inspired by a true story -- I had an old cassette tape containing a beautiful piece of classical music I couldn't identify. The frustration involved in trying to track down the title and composer of that piece was something I tried to magnify and channel into the character of Anthony.  Then, as his backstory emerged, the music became symbolic of something else. I originally wrote the play as part of the "31 Plays in 31 Days" challenge (http://31plays31days.com/), but also had this competition in mind. I'm thrilled to have been selected as the play of the month!
