Taylor-Corbett has received multiple award nominations including Tony and Drama Desk for her famous productions like ‘Swing!', ‘Chess' and ‘Titanic'. She has been honored with a A. Callaway Award for her expertise and theatrical excellence.
A group of musicians have combined their talents and created the original score that ranges from Doo Wop to pop, to blues to ballads. Besides Donna Moore, John Baxindine, Mark Barkan, Seth Lefforts, Arnie Gross and Meryl Leppard have contributed in creating the catchy score for the musical.
