the grind.

Music & Book by JJ Warshaw

Lyrics by Nick Parker

Dani wants more than anything to be a writer – but she’ll have to contend with her empty bank account, screw-up sister, dramatic mother, high-strung boss, her 'no labels' bae, and, of course, train delays. With a modern, R&B-infused score, THE GRIND is about following your dream while dealing with everything else.

4 Women / 5 Men (+ensemble)

Script Excerpt

Songs recently workshopped with Andrew Lippa, Stephen Bray & Craig Carnelia at the The Johnny Mercer Foundation Songwriters Project. Currently in development with Grind Arts Co.
