DETAILS ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:
After a double-blind application process and review by the NYMFa Grand Jury, Thicket & Thistle's What's Your Wish? was 1 of 10 shows chosen to receive subsidized productions with administrative support as part of the New York Musical Festival's Next Link project. NYMF is the largest musical theater festival in the country and will host 5 OFF-BROADWAY performances of WHAT'S YOUR WISH? This production will cost at least 15 times more than we have ever spent on a show and we need help from our friends and fans to raise it!
