“Where are all the Latin writers? This is a question that the Latiné Musical Theater Lab has made it its primary mission to answer.
And now the Lab has compiled a database of writers, and it’s live and in color!
The database currently contains 100 Latin musical theater authors – librettists, lyricists and composers. Each artist has an individual profile that shares their hometown, pronouns, identities, social media handles, and a link to their personal website that directs the user to learn more about each writer, their music, and the stories he says. The database is easy to navigate and organized alphabetically by first initial of each writer’s first name.
“Where are all the Latin writers? Now there is an answer! They are neatly organized in a new database and ready to get to work. It’s time to tell our stories!
*The lab would like to thank Gretta Martson-Lari, lab staff member, the brains behind this digital database!
