Meet The Playwrights of NY SummerFest: Marsha Johnson Who Brings a Child’s Heart to Playwrighting

Marsha Johnson

Even though a grandmother now, Marsha Johnson still feels herself to be a child masquerading as a grown-up. “I have done a very grown-up thing, I know. I have written a show. But it is the child that comes to life in the making of a creative work. It is the adult that tempers that work with all the attention she can give while busy doing the grown-up things the world demands; I am a nurse and mother. My show was born in New Jersey not far from where I was born to a baker and a housewife. I live there still in the very house where a fairy tale was born ten years ago. Together with my co-writer, Catherine Waid we nourished this tale till it was ready to leave home. At this juncture, we release it to the world for both grown-ups and children to enjoy. Welcome to Moondance, an urban fairy tale for the grown-up in us for we will always be children.”

In Moondance, a dead wife’s wish sets this play in motion, as she casts a spell to bring her husband new love. As the spell goes into action, hilarity ensues and the magical plot unfolds, as the quirky diverse characters reveal timeless truths about friendship, challenge, love, and the power of neighborhood. This new musical, has an original book and score by Ms Johnson, which she is excited to share.

Moondance: is part of the NY SummerFest at The Hudson Theatre Guild, 441 West 26 Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues). Performances are July 9 at 9pm, 11th at 9pm and the 14th at 6pm. This is an Equity approved showcase.
