“The Funkentine Rapture is a delightful romp through an era and it’s music…I highly recommend it.” – Kent Nicholson, Broadway Licensing

Book by Lee Summers & Ben Blake
Music and Lyrics by Lee Summers
Musical Director: Lon Hoyt

The Broadway-bound funky story of a reluctant Master of Funk and the Disco Villain who tries to stop him, featuring an Original Book and Score,  inspired by the Music of Parliament-Funkadelic and other unsung heroes of funk.

“The Funkentine Rapture is a delightful romp through an era and it’s music. Truly original, it evokes the spirit of Funk and Harlem of the 70’s as well as any jukebox musical ever could. In fact better. I highly recommend it.” – Kent Nicholson Director of Musical Theatre Development at Playwrights Horizons.
