In Emily’s Words
Presented by MSU College of Arts and Letters’ Department of Theatre and MSUFCU Institute for Arts & Creativity at Wharton Center.
Book, Music & Lyrics by Jessy Tomsko
Guest Directed by Susanna Wolk
Guest Music Direction by Keiji Ishiguri
This year’s new musical at MSU, In Emily’s Words tells the story of English novelist Emily Brontë as she is writing her magnum opus Wuthering Heights. This new musical explores her journey as a female writer in the 1840’s, battling illness and adversity, while crafting the sweeping melodrama that has left a legacy nearly 200 years after her death.
In its ninth year, the 2022 ĭmáGen staged concert is a collaboration with the Wharton Center for Arts & Creativity supported by MSU Federal Credit Union and Michigan State University’s College of Arts & Letters’ Department of Theatre. This new musical, still in development, will feature Broadway talent on the same stage with MSU musical theatre students and local high school actors.
A Season of Community
Throughout the year, a diversity of voices and spectrum of representation will both challenge our intellectual and emotional responses to the social conditions in which we live and need to change and champion traditions that bind us together as neighbors making us stronger together. We hope you will consider becoming a season subscriber, so you won’t miss another production where MSU is building “Community.”
Michigan State University’s Department of Theatre has an outstanding history of producing plays that address critical social and cultural issues. From “In the Blood” to “Baltimore” to “Punk Rock,” MSU boldly embraces challenging theater.
