The BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop is widely regarded as the premiere training ground for emerging musical theatre composers, lyricists, and librettists.

The Smoker is an annual event that features the most outstanding new songs presented in the Workshop that year.

  1.  Pamela, a trailer trash mom with a heart of gold, in “Back To My Arms” from #MARS by Laura Kleinbaum and Willem Oosthuysen
  2. Miriam, a recently-dumped schoolteacher who turns into a mermaid, in “What Even (Is My Life Right Now)” from The Average-Sized Mermaid by Jessica Fleitman and Rick Bassett.
  3. A small, sad child, in “Monkey in the Middle” from Going South by Katya Stanislavskaya.
