UPDATE: I WON! I will be performing “p@rt_of_{ur}_w0r1d” at an event showcasing the winners prior to the opening night of God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater at Encores on July 27. If you’re coming to that show, be sure to get there early for the lobby performance!

NY City Center is hosting a contest to reimagine an Alan Menken song as part of their production of God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater.  (You may remember my entry from their Sondheim Remix contest a few years ago.)
