Inspiring new musical - special discount tix through Hope Sings

When Danny Goldstein, a musical theatre director I know, Facebooked me about his latest directing project, the new musical "Tamar of the River," I thought: this isn't your run-of-the-mill musical comedy. This show is up to something in the world. 

"Tamar of the River" asks the question: would you betray the one you love to bring peace to all?

Musical Theatre legend Maury Yeston calls it "genuinely new, crossing musical boundaries." Marisa Michelson is the composer, Joshua H. Cohen the lyricist, and they share book duties.

AND producer Cara Reichel of the Prospect Theater Company is offering Hope Sings fans a special discount offer!

Purchase tix by Sept. 21 with code HOPE30 for $30 regular tickets - a 40% savings!  

After Sept. 21, use code HOPE25 to save 25% on regular tickets ($37.50 price).

Purchase tickets at, or call 212-352-3101.
