“Walk in My Gravity,” an original song cycle, will have its world premiere at The Vanguard, at 180 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, with three shows only — Saturday, June 26 at 3PM and 8PM, and Sunday, June 27, at 4PM.

Written as part of Vanguard’s VTC Next program, the composers and lyricists have dug deep into the issues that weigh them down, and also lift them up to connect with one another. VTC Next is a program designed to train and mentor the next generation of behind the scenes theater professionals to create more equity in the theater industry.
