NAMT Songwriters Showcase.

They have collaborated on two other musicals: The Woman Upstairs and Wrong Number, both of which
were featured in the New York Musical Theatre Festival. They are recipients of a 2006 Jonathan Larson
Award and a 2004-2005 Jonathan Larson Fellowship at the Dramatists Guild, and they are members of
the BMI Musical Theatre Advanced workshop, ASCAP and the Dramatists Guild.

Kerrigan is a graduate of Barnard College. Her plays include Transit and Imaginary Love, which was a
2006 Princess Grace Award Finalist. Lowdermilk studied at Harvard University and NYU where he
received the Alan Menken Award. With collaborator Marcus Stevens, Lowdermilk was the recipient of a
