About the show

New York NeoFuturists presents the world premiere of this musical based on the real-life online collaboration between New York and Australian musicians. More…

'Steve: A Docu-Musical' is a new play that chronicles the true story of Colin Summer’s 8-year online correspondence and artistic collaboration with Steve, a "Gen X" Australian. Together, Steve and Colin have written hundreds of songs. In Colin’s account of their unconventional relationship, Steve’s original songs and emails paint a vivid picture of a fascinating character. An exploration of the artist within all of us, 'Steve: A Docu-Musical' reveals the potential for human connection sparked by a simple Google search.
