In August, thanks to First Book, the Kaufman Center in New York City adapted my novel Monsoon Summer into a musical. Here's the gorgeous cast:

The composer/songwriter, Beth Sorrentino, sent me a demo of herself (listen above) singing "Monsoon Summer," which was sung as the finale by the entire cast in (her words) "a full-out Bollywood number." The Center is going to send me a DVD of the show, and I can't wait to see it and hear the kids singing this and the other beautiful songs Beth created for the musical.
