How did the first musical about bleeding disorders get from page to stage?
In 2018, Hemophilia: The Musical! went from idea to script and into the hands of the teen cast members who would originate their roles in the show’s premiere Off-Broadway production! Learn how Breaking Through! Musical Theatre Intensive came to be in this special behind-the-scenes Making of Breaking Through Video.
Made possible exclusively by BioMarin, and in partnership with the Foundation for Art & Healing, the Breaking Through! Musical Theater Intensive was studied and shown to improve a host of outcomes:
I'd like to highlight three exciting results:
100% of Cast Members left feeling more connected to
others with bleeding disorders;
100% of Cast Members left feeling more motivated in managing
all aspects of their bleeding disorder;
100% of Cast Members said they were more likely to
engage in the creative arts.
These particular results were exciting and empowering to all of us at Believe Limited, because we are a team of artists who know what the arts and self-expression has meant in our lives. It is thrilling and humbling to see that we are translating our passion into results for the community.
