book & lyrics by Jack Schlesinger
music by Danny Ursetti
Your Brand-New, Incurable Disease is a new musical in development about an incurable disease librettist Jack Schlesinger currently has in development, with music by Danny Ursetti, who is currently unaware of any incurable diseases, but he hasn’t gotten a physical in a while. We follow Zack as he tries to pursue a comedy career despite his body and mind shutting down around him, helped and hindered along the way by a ensemble chorus of pills in a complex and genre-hopping score. Through comedic abstractions we see Zack’s worsening illness as he tries to figure out what it means to be “okay”.
