STOLEN IDEA is a comedy punk rock musical that covers the theft of intellectual property in the artistic worlds of music and comedy. The story follows a standup comedian and a rock musician who are both approaching 40 and are fearful their time to “make it” is running out. In ACT I Phil was a singer-songwriter. Matt was a stand-up comedian. They didn’t know each other. They had never met. The only thing they had in common was a fear that their careers might be over. Our story begins with Phil at a place where careers begin, end, and never happen, open mic night. Across town, Matt performed his tightest ten because tonight was special. In the audience, was the booker from The Big Talk Show.
