Put the following in the memo line:  POTP MUSICAL


Greenway Arts Alliance
& Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria

as they join forces to present


Book by Kate Atkinson & Karen Harris
Music & Lyrics by Dan Fogelberg

PART OF THE PLAN is a New Musical – an original story scored with the music and lyrics of the late, celebrated, singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg. The book, written by Kate Atkinson & Karen Harris, follows three decades in the lives of an adopted boy and the teenaged girl of privilege who was forced to give him up.
PART OF THE PLAN takes us through the boom times of post-World War II America, the social and sexual revolution of the 1960’s, and the political upheaval of the 1970’s.  And then fate steps in…
Our vision is to present a powerful story, told with heart and passion, and to bring Dan Fogelberg’s music to a generation who may not know his work, to those who may have forgotten his artistry, and to the die-hard fans who long to hear his music in all forms. 

Six Performances in Los Angeles!


Performances will be the last two weekends in July
FRIDAY, July 24 – 8pm
SUNDAY, July 26 – 7pm

THURSDAY, July 30 – 8pm
FRIDAY, July 31 – 8pm
SATURDAY, August 1 – 2pm
SUNDAY, August 2 – 7pm

Once you donate, you will receive an email
so that you can choose one of the performances to attend.

From the Part of the Plan team:
“We are entering a new stage in the development of our Broadway-bound musical. With the support of Greenway Arts Alliance and Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria, you have an opportunity to see it in a workshop-style environment, before we take it to a regional theatre.”

Inkslam 2015 WINNERS

INKSLAM 2015, LA’s premiere poetry festival.  After three days of panels, workshops and slams, we highlight for you who hold the crown for Indie slam and The team that now holds the title of WEST COAST CHAMPION of SPOKEN WORD!

Thursday, July 9th was a special presentation of  ”Founders Day!,” a night that the founders,

Dante Basco, Poetri Smith, ‘Brutha’ Gimel Hooper and Shihan Clief

shared stories and poems from the start of DPL and how they went from all sleeping in the same house, to starting this “poetry thing”, printing flyers at Kinkos, and talking to people at acting auditions. They built a tribe and a community that stands now as DPL, one of  the biggest poetry gatherings in the country that happens here at the Greenway Court Theater in Hollywood, every Tuesday.

And Finally the indie slam Winner Crown and prize money goes to Ed Mabrey.

After a tie with Rudy Francisco, the people decided to let the two poets battle it out for one final round.

With a very heartfelt poem from Rudy Francisco, Ed Mabrey followed it up with freestyle that left nobody in the house sitting. Talking about the love and respect he had for every poet in the room and how our grandchildren would talk about this night!
