After the lauded World Premiere of The Boy Who Danced On Air, Diversionary is proud to produce the World Premiere of another groundbreaking new musical.
Following the life and evolution of Anita Bryant and her biggest fan, Tommy, The Loneliest Girl in the World magically charts the emergence of the gay rights movement on urgently intimate terms. By turns delightful and provocative, this inspiring new musical is a reminder of a battle yet won, the purpose of pie, and the power of an individual voice.
The Loneliest Girl in the World was featured in the National Alliance for Musical Theatre’s Festival of New Musicals Fall 2016. Leary and Meinwald’s musicals have been seen at Ars Nova, The Director’s Company, Joe’s Pub, Lincoln Center Directors Lab, Prospect Theater Company, Weston Playhouse, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and the York Theatre Company. Leary is the recipient of the 2009 Richard Rodgers Award.
This production is generously supported in part by The Arch & Bruce Brown Foundation and the National Alliance for Musical Theatre’s National Fund for New Musicals.
