Winner of 6 Theatre Bay Area Awards including “Outstanding World Premiere Musical” and 2 SF Bay Area Critics Circle Awards including “Best Production”! Named a 2017 Richard Rodgers Award Finalist by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Triangle is an original mystery-romance with music by Curtis Moore, lyrics by Thomas Mizer and book by Mizer, Moore and Joshua Scher. Two love stories, set in the same New York City building but a hundred years apart, weave together across the century as long buried secrets are uncovered and ghosts of the past begin to influence the future.

Triangle was commissioned by the Williamstown Theatre Festival and developed at the Eugene O’Neill Music Theatre Conference and the American Musical Theatre Project at Northwestern University. It received a workshop production at the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma in Spring 2014 and had its World Premiere at TheatreWorks, Silicon Valley in July 2015.

“Triangle” is astonishingly successful. The Moore-Mizer score is rich in melody and emotion …what really counts here is just how moving the stories are and how the songs heighten the emotion without cheapening it. [The musical] eloquently combines past and present and makes way for the future. San Francisco Chronicle

A beautiful new musical …engaging the audience immediately with humor, romance and pathos.   Regarding Arts

…a fulfilling and well-crafted musical theater experience with a deep and heart-stirring humanity. — San Francisco Examiner
