'One Million Musicals'

One Million Musicals was born with a mission: a mission to write and produce … you guessed it, one million musicals. Encouraged by the detrimental blow the pandemic dealt to the entertainment industry, One Million Musicals allowed creators Jacob Ben-Shmuel and Alan Blake Bachelor to expand the accessibility of broadway-quality musical theatre to audiences while flexing their creative muscles.

This episode, Musical #6, is dubbed “The Good Ship Antiphony” — and is sure to deliver some good old-fashioned sea shanty fun. The description for the musical can be found below.

“In the near future, wind-powered sailing vessels venture across the Earth’s polluted oceans in order to rid the sea of filth and debris. When one such vessel, The Good Ship Antiphony, finds itself in the middle of the ocean and without wind, the crew must come together and keep their spirits up the only way they know how: singing some good ol’ fashioned sea songs. Will the crew escape the doldrums? Will the ocean ever be cleaned? Will there be pirate accents?? You’ll just have to listen and find out, ye scurvy dog!”
