Tisch Drama STAGEworks Presents 

Times Square

A new musical

In collaboration with The Civilians


Music & Lyrics by Jill Sobule and Robin Eaton

Book by Jim Lewis

Directed by Steve Cosson


Inspired by the film Times Square

Screenplay by Jacob Brackman

Story by Allan Moyle and Leanne Unger

and by Special Arrangement with Studiocanal


Steve Cosson & The Civilians are Tisch Drama’s spring 2018 Artists-in-Residence 

Times Square is a new musical about two girls, Nicky and Pammy, who find courage, love, and rock and roll while on the run in the sleazy streets of the old Times Square. They meet, start a band, The Sleaze Sisters (Riot Grrrls before the concept existed), and eventually kiss, freak out, and kiss again. At a time when many non-conforming young people face tough challenges, The Civilians are excited to tell the story of two girls who save themselves through their own efforts—their songs, their bond, and their total refusal to back down.

Times Square is a period piece set in the 1970’s. Accordingly, several of the characters present limited gender binaries as well as racially insensitive, homophobic, and misogynist stances, reflected at times in their words and actions. The intent is by no way to advocate for these frameworks, but rather to present them as artifacts of a time and place—and, in so doing, to highlight the challenges faced and overcome by the two lead characters.

Tisch Drama STAGEworks productions can include subjects and content that may not be appropriate for young audiences. Discretion is advised.
