Yale establishes music branch

Yale Institute for Music Theater launches

Yale U. is diving into the musical theater world in a big way.

University has established the Yale Institute for MusicTheater, collaboration between Yale’s Schools of Drama and Music. The tuner initiative is set to bow June 7-21 with workshops for three original musical theater projects.

Mark Brokaw, whose tuner credits include Broadway’s “Cry-Baby,” Kennedy Center’s “A Little Night Music” and the musical version of “Marty” at Beantown’s Huntington, will be artistic director. Beth Morrison produces.

James Bundy is dean of the School of Drama (and a.d. of its professional theater, the Rep) and Robert Blocker is dean of the School of Music.

There will be a public component for the emerging shows in the June residency, but the initiative is oriented more toward development than production.

New institute will accept applications for projects “in various stages of development” through Jan. 23.
