Debate Team

Debate Team is a darkly comedic, new musical in one act by Brooklyn composer Toby Singer. Like a cross between The Book of Mormon and Moliere’s Candide, peering through the lens of modern day Silicon Valley, Debate Team examines when cell phone technology, ego, and a blindly utopic vision of the future converge, with apocalyptic results.

Pearl's Review 

The year is 1923. The Santa Rita well has hit the pay and Miss Pearl's Parlor is open for business. Fun, entertaining and touching, Cynthia will showcase PEARL with music and dialogue from the musical, PEARL. The music is a combination of saloon, vaudeville, boogie and burlesque much in the style of the 20s. This work is best described as BEST LITTLE WHORE HOUSE meets CHICAGO meets ROMEO AND JULIET.
