The Colorado premiere of WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) The Musical is scheduled for June 6th & 7th (7:30pm), 8th (2pm), 2014 at Crossroads Theater (2590 Washington Street) in the heart of the downtown Renaissance district of Five Points.

WYSIWYG takes a modern twist on gender identity. April, a transgender woman, is so anxious to live her secret life on the World Wide Web that she cannot enjoy the here and now. While feelings and emotions expressed online are real, they remain hidden and elusive in the cold reality of our day to day world; ironically, she does not fully exist in either world and fears she could die without ever having truly lived.

Each character is drawn to the Internet to satisfy an irresistible urge to unleash their alter ego. Mark, a holistic therapist, runs the Gender Identity Center where the characters meet for the first time. He uses various techniques to help the group find themselves and become more comfortable with who they really are.

"This project has been a labor of love." said Glenn Alsup, composer of WYSIWYG The Musical, "It's amazing how creativity flourishes when there is an emotional connection to the subject matter". The musical is an intensely personal story that creates a pulsing conduit to the issues of self-revelation, love, sex, isolation, alienation and the human comic-drama of interpersonal dilemmas.

Alsup studied music at Marietta College and Peabody Conservatory. While in college he worked as the house pianist on the Becky Thatcher Riverboat. After college, he toured with L.A.'s #1 80's band, "The Twisters" and one of Hollywood's most pretentious glam bands "Joshua". More recently, as a member of the Central City Opera board of directors, he helped steer the organization to have a greater emphasis on American Music Theater. 

The musical is directed by Evan Duggan with music direction from longtime friend Tony Domenick. The cast includes Kelly Zick, Blake Nawa, Drew Bradley and Nick Trotter. Glenn and the cast are committed to this work...they ask us to feel a lot more than we may dare.
