JAZZ x CLASSICAL OFF BROADWAY SHOW

We are a group of talented Jazz and Classical musician-actors living & working in NYC. The play is a musical battleground - Jazz VS. Classical. The reason for this uproar is that lead musician on Trumpet, Christopher falls in love with lead violinist, Carolina. 

Carolina is from an upper class family while Christopher is a struggling musician. The two can not be together, but still try to even though Carolina's family does not accept it and Christopher's peers do not accept it. Will they end up together? Will their peers and families tear them apart? Will they choose on their own to stay apart? Come to the show and find out. 

FEATURING:

For What It's Worth is working with several talented musicians who can even incorporate dance while working with these heavy instruments. The show will feature Grammy Nominated artists, NYC based musicians who play at the top jazz joints, and former member of STOMP.

We are looking forward to performing at the Midtown International Theatre Festival July 2017, Kraine Theatre September 2017, and New York New Works October 2017!
