Ten years ago MARSHALL SUCH created "Radio! The Musical" based on his experiences working in INDIANAPOLIS radio. Written with SUCH's life-long friend and tunesmith, STEPHEN TAYLOR, "Radio!" is the story of a struggling INDIANAPOLIS radio station fighting a takeover by an evil broadcast group.
Now, SUCH is in the final days of a KICKSTARTER fundraising campaign for a new musical, "BAM!," a modern re-telling of SHAKESPEARE's "Much Ado About Nothing." Set in 1967 with modern dialog, the music by AUSTIN (by way of ST. LOUIS) rocker ZACK WEBER and television composer, (Pawn Stars, American Pickers, McDonald's commercial) L.J. NACHSIN, is the result of a three month studio collaboration. "When I first heard what ZACK and LARRY were doing, I was blown away," said SUCH. "The music was so melodic and the song stories so interesting our team had to create a musical around it."
Check out details here. The KICKSTARTER campaign ends on FRIDAY at 3:30p EST.
