Presented by Premieres, in association with Primary Stages


In 2008, PREMIERES embarked on a new initiative in keeping with its mission to support creative talent, and produced Inner Voices: Solo Musicals. Inspired by Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads’,  Inner Voices introduces a new genre of theater that unites the spoken monologue with a tapestry of lyrics and music.
