Be in the audience for this historic moment when we introduce Richmond audiences to a workshop version of JC Gonzalez's new pop/rock opera WARM.
Join us for the first workshop staging of this incredible new musical about three teenage runaways searching for home and finding it in each other on the streets of Los Angeles. Gonzalez’s high octane score includes one hit song after another that are sure to grab your heart and soul and get you on your feet cheering.
Composer/librettist JC Gonzalez was born in New York City to a father who had a gift for writing and a mother who was passionate about music. Gonzalez began his professional career as a dancer/choreographer when he was a teenager in L.A. When he returned to Manhattan in his twenties he landed a starring role in the Broadway musical RENT.
