Author's Notes:
You may think from a cursory reading on Lint! The Musical that the authors dislike musical theater. Quite the opposite. The form is loved by both me and Scott Auden. Our quibble is with the pat, formulaic musical that neither breaks new ground nor says anything other than what's been said before. These "boilerplate" musicals are easy to predict - it's like we've all seen them a hundred times before. Lint! The Musical is our response to this tripe.

What if you were stuck in one of these musicals? Not stuck DOING one of them, but actually stuck living inside a musical?

Would you fight?

Would you lose your mind?

Would you consider a career in accounting?

Make Lint! your own. Make it fun. Make it big. But most importantly, make it true.

 
Synopsis
Phoebe's got a problem . . . no matter where she goes, no matter what she does, she constantly finds herself in a musical. While this wouldn't be a problem to some folks, Phoebe tries to escape by taking a job in a laundromat. Everything is fine until one day Phoebe looks up and sees the audience, the lights, everything. Three muses: Biz, Fab, and Cheer, rise up out of the washers and explain to Phoebe that there is no escaping this musical until she finishes the show and follows the rules to get there. Reluctantly, and with more than a little sarcasm, Phoebe enlists the help of Gary, a pathetic cuckold who was just minding his own business. Jack and Jill enter and the race to finish the musical begins. Along the way, they encounter Heinrich von Baddie, Phoebe's boss and the representation of villainy in the play. Faced with impending doom (and marriage), Phoebe and her new friends sing themselves through many different emotions and stories, culminating in the classic confrontation of good and evil: a landlord wearing leiderhosen and a government agent wearing a jet-pack.
 
Featuring the witty repartee of Scott Auden's dialogue and Bill Arnold's music, Lint! The Musical takes the audience through the musical experience. If you didn't know the rules going into it, you'll certainly know them afterwards. So really, this show is a public service for people who find themselves stuck in a musical and don't know what to do. One final tip from the Lint! creative team: Clean your lint trap often. It saves energy, and you'll get more lint to have fun with!
 
Lint! The Musical premiered at Hole in the Wall Theater in New Britain, Connecticut in 2003 and was work-shopped by the same company in 2002.
