BIL WRIGHT AND DIONNE McCLAIN-FREENEY created the audience favorite "This One Girls Story" (GLAAD Nomination) which was first produced by Gayfest where it played to sold out houses. TOGS was reprised at the New York Musical Theater Festival winning Best Ensemble. Wright and McClain-Freeney followed up with "The Sugar Hill Sisters" which was introduced at The New York Musical Theater Festival and The Lambs Theater in San Diego. "The Movie Star and the Mammy" had a hugely successful staged reading at Joe's Pub last year. DIONNE McCLAIN FREENEY (Composer) has appeared on numerous national and international stages, and accompanied a variety of artists from Broadway, television, and the recording industry. Her award-winning musical theater compositions and arrangements (New York Musical Theatre Festival; GLAAD Media Award nominee), including the music for The Sugar Hill Sisters (book and lyrics by Bil Wright), and music and lyrics for This One Girl's Story (book by Bil Wright) have been featured on television and radio, and praised in several online and print publications. In 2016, Dionne headlined Joe's Pub, and was one of the keyboardists that set the Guinness World Record for World's Largest Electronic Keyboard Ensemble in 2013.
