Common Man Musicals presents a production of new one-act musicals by a collective of fresh new NYC writers brought together by one common man denominator - composer Jonathan Fadner -
Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance is in cahoots with CMM to initiate an ongoing project with the intention of gathering the community together in a positive, educational and inspiring atmosphere of live music and theater.
Common Man Musicals wishes to invite all folks who crave a real-life experience in the arts with shows that are currently relevant, relatable, and affordable!
Our audience should expect a friendly, down-to-earth vibe of humble storytelling through cutting edge theatre and music at the price of a movie ticket. Show-goers will enjoy refreshments, drinks, and merriment before the show begins, to create a fun and easy-going atmosphere.
The crucial common folk in this production are:
JONATHAN FADNER (Executive Director/Composer/Music Director)
KIMBIRDLEE FADNER (Artistic Director, Actor)
KRISTI TOWEY (Executive Director of MSTDA)
Rick Bassett, Jonathan Fadner, Jacinth Greywoode, Brad Ross, Melissa Miles, Austin Nuckols, Casey O’Neil, Peter Michael von der Nahmer, David Kornfield

Many of the folks involved in CMM come from the prestigious Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at NYU-Tisch, where there is tremendous talent and brilliant material being written. We want to provide an opportunity for these pieces to be heard and seen and enjoyed. It is our intention that CMM be an ongoing project with at least 3 productions per year.
