An Interview with May-Elise Martinsen
So you move to the big city. You’re an aspiring theatre artist, determined and wide-eyed, ready to make New York your own. What do you do? How do you get started? For Amy, the protagonist of the new webseries 59 Days in New York, you keep a musical video diary. But something similar can be said of May-Elise Martinsen, the writer, composer, and star of 59 Days in New York.
59 Days in New York is on Kickstarter!
Amy is four episodes and 19 days into her 59 Days in New York adventure. But to complete her remaining five episodes and to take the project to the next level, we need your help!
For thirty days only, we will be fundraising $8,700 to support the production of the remainder of the project. To learn more about how you can support this new web musical and to watch an original musical Kickstarter video, visit our Kickstarter page.
The Creative Process of a Musical Vlogger
May-Elise Martinsen’s parents would tell you she’s been singing since she could talk.
Born in Oslo, Norway, Martinsen, 23, didn’t seriously consider music until she moved to Sarasota, Florida in fifth grade. Her mother encouraged her to audition for “The King and I.” After being cast, she realized her love for musicals.
