In December 2014, Maggie had excerpts from two of her musicals selected for presentation at Theater Now's Sound Bites 2014 Festival of 10-Minute Musicals in the 200-seat Off-Broadway 47th Street Theater. Portions were performed from her musical Dust, about a family coping with the dust bowl in the American South (with music by Douglas Makuta), and The Boy, The King, and the Flower, a musical fairytale based on an old fable (with music by Neil Douglas Reilly). The latter will continue development this summer with director Katherine M. Carter (Gods & Kings). Songs from Dust performed included "California" and "When The World's At It's End" and from BKF "All That You Are" and "I Can Grow Anything."
Maggie's first comissioned piece, The Edelweiss Pirates, was workshopped in January and March of 2015. The 45-minute musical follows the story of several members of the Edelweiss Pirates, a real group of teenagers who resisted the Nazis in Germany beginning in the late 1930s. Both the reading and staged presentation were directed by Michael Berry (Broadway: Next to Normal (Original Cast), Les Miserables) and produced by the Northeast Children's Theatre Company. The show will continue being workshopped in the coming months with plans to tour middle schools throughout the tri-state area during the 2015-2016 school year.
In February, Loch Lomond, a new musical based on the Scottish legend, had its first presentation, with music direction by James Dobson (Off-Broadway: Clinton: The Musical). The show features book & lyrics by Maggie and music by Neil Douglas Reilly and will have further development this coming summer, including presentations in July and August.
