Flying V will kick off our 2023 season with a week-long developmental workshop of the new coming-of-age musical Vanishing Girl.

Bright college student Luciana has always felt invisible. She leans on her one best friend, crushes on the girl at the comic shop from afar, and toils at writing alone. Suddenly, Luciana acquires electricity-related superpowers and finds that, like a battery, she’s slowly fading out. Can she figure out how to be seen before it’s too late?

Vanishing Girl is a powerful new musical by William Yanesh (music and lyrics) and Hope Villanueva (book) and directed by Eric Jordan Young about feeling invisible and learning you’re not.

The show has had preliminary readings and showcases at the Latiné Musical Theatre Lab in NYC and The Composers Showcase of Las Vegas.

The workshop will culminate with two public performances at 7 PM on Saturday, January 28, 2023, and 3 PM on Sunday, January 29, 2023 at the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre (8641 Colesville Road). Tickets for both performances will be pay-what-you-can, with a suggested donation of $10.
