BOSTICCO & RANDALL
"A new and vital musical theatre voice that needs to be heard. This team has the wit and scope of any of our our best writers. Musically astonishing - unafraid to experiment with brazen rhythms and unconventional musicality yet the capacity to create beautiful, melodic journeys that linger with their listeners. The work brings relevance and politics together in a way that educates and captures the imagination yet somehow keeps the masses entertained. A very narrow tight rope. You'll be hearing a LOT from this duo." - Keith Merrill
Carlo Bosticco and Matt Randall are an international writing duo.
They are proud members of Mercury Musical Development, and were handpicked for its Writing Lab II.
Their first show, “Chasing Icarus” has been privately workshopped in NYC and London. It was chosen as part of the “new writing” module at Leeds Conservatoire (2021) and dramaturgically developed. It went on to receive Arts Council of England funding. A public reading is scheduled in late 2022 w./ director Charlotte Peters (WarHorse).
Songs from “Chasing Icarus” have been selected and performed by the Symphony Orchestra of Guiyang, China (2016); The song “My Own Other Half” placed second at the “Mercury Theatre Songwriting Awards” (2019).
Their second show “Just Be(e)” was recently workshopped by the BA Musical Theatre course at Winchester University (2022), where it was selected by a committee comprised of both students and faculty.
