Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunningham's show Next Thing You Know was produced at CAP21 in our 2011 season. Josh and Ryan later received the 2013 Jonathan Larson Grant Award.
CAP21 production of "Next Thing You Know" played a vital role in the development of the show's orchestrations. Hearing the songs night after night performed by an outstanding team of actors and musicians was a crucial step in solidifying the musical score.

CAP21 was an invaluable partner in helping turn "Next Thing You Know" from a song cycle into a book musical. The chance to hear the show out loud, and to collaborate with this incredible team of artists was hugely helpful in the development of our show.
