MainStreet Evaluation Service
(est. 1983)

| The Committee | The Awards | The Library | Submit A Musical |

Evaluation of new musicals, MainStreet's core program, was originally designed and organized in 1983 at National Music Theater Network (NMTN) by a charter committee of professional theater directors, choreographers and music directors.  Since then, the program has reviewed more than 1000 musicals. (Committee link).

The Evaluation Report form was designed by the original group to focus Evaluators on the aspects of composition where comments would be most useful to the creators.  Each new Submission is read by two Evaluators who each complete a report.  Both reports are returned to the creators to serve as editorial aids.  Evaluators may nominate a show for the MainStreet’s Directors’ Choice Awards program. 

If you are a stage director, music director, director-choreographer, or college theater professor and wish to become a MainStreet Evaluator, please contact us at:
