Calling All Lovers Of Musical Theatre

2 Winners get FREE streaming access to BREATHE the Musical

By Catherine Heatley, Publisher Mom, Macaroni Kid Rutland - Windsor Counties VT June 25, 2021

Its not every day that you get a front row seat to musical theatre's newest show, but today just might be that day!


BREATHE is the musical conceived by #1 New York Times bestselling novelist Jodi Picoult in her theatrical debut, along with playwright Timothy Allen McDonald. Written as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, BREATHE chronicles the virus’ impact on five very different relationships. Told in five interlocking suites - each with a different songwriting team and director - BREATHE features an all-star cast that includes Tony Award® winners Kelli O’Hara and Brian Stokes Mitchell, Patti Murin, Colin Donnell, Deneฬe Benton, Rubeฬn J. Carbajal, Matt Doyle, Max Clayton, Daniel Yearwood, T. Oliver Reid and Josh Davis.

TWO readers will receive streaming access
NOW through Friday, July 2nd, 2021

This is a streaming opportunity unlike others you've seen. Theatre streaming platform OVERTURE+ is proud to announce the opportunity for 10 regional affiliate theatres to stream BREATHE to local audiences. “The BREATHE streaming opportunity is a great way to involve regional theatre venues that have been fighting to keep doors open since last March in a national-scale streaming event,” said OVERTURE+ Chief Executive Officer Seth Greenleaf. “OVERTURE+ is excited to be at the forefront of this unique partnership opportunity and what it means for the theatre industry as a whole.” Involving the affiliates brings this unique streaming opportunity to a local level, and ultimately benefits theatre venues across several markets that have struggled with viability since early last year. 

Jodi Picoult explains that BREATHE "chronicles the effects of the pandemic on the lives of individuals, but also the blows fielded by the theatre community, and how in spite of hurdles and significant obstacles, resilience is the key to creating art and to making it accessible to patrons.”

What critics are saying: 

“Deeply moving. This well-structured musical finds the right emotional key for this experience we have all shared.”  -- Chicago Tribune
