This is a song from my episode of Washeteria: A site specific, immersive theater piece for children. Louisa Thompson designed a fantastical laundromat inside an former auto parts store in Brooklyn. I wrote a mini-musical for the piece. My episode (Directed by the luminous Annie Tippe) is called Consuela and the Great Genie of The Laundry Bag. It's about a woman trapped inside a laundromat by an evil manager, and a genie who loves granola bars.

One thing that is interesting about this show is that that as we've been rehearsing, every single day we are visited for an hour by a different second grade class from The Brooklyn Arbor. I love the idea of making a musical in front of an gaggle of squirming second graders.  

Tickets are HERE.
