ThreeTimesFast is a new musical with book and lyrics by Naomi Matlow and book and music by Teresa Lotz. The show follows the coming of age of fifteen-year-old Olivia Klemons as she wades through the stress of high school, her mother’s remarriage, a move to a new house and her fresh diagnosis with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. As Olivia faces her deepest fears through therapy, she uncovers strength she never knew she had. Through Olivia’s struggles, her family members contemplate the habits we develop to help get us through the day with a feeling of greater control over life’s inevitable uncertainties.
Teresa and Naomi are honored to have spent a five day writing retreat in Red Bank, NJ with Two River Theater Company working on ThreeTimesFast.
The first fifteen minutes of ThreeTimesFast was presented as part of Musical Theatre Factory's 4x15 - Round 4 in NYC.
The first act of ThreeTimesFast was performed to a full crowd at the Dixon Place Lounge on February 8th. The event was pay by donation and all proceeds benefited the International OCD Foundation!
