Los Angeles News New Musical It's All Your Fault, Tyler Price! to Premiere in Los Angeles

The project is the brainchild of Emmy winner Ben Decter and Tony nominee Kristin Hanggi.

Emmy winner Ben Decter (Lucifer) and Tony nominee Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) have collaborated on a new musical, It's All Your Fault, Tyler Price! The work will get a world premiere at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood November 7-December 15. Opening night will be November 14.

The musical follows a middle school kid who punches his bully, Tyler Price, defending his epileptic sister. His principal demands he explain himself to the entire school, which, naturally drives him to stage a musical.

"When my family was in crisis—my little girl, diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, was having 100 seizures a day and we felt so isolated—I never imagined a musical would grow out of it. Writing these songs helped my family have difficult conversations and come together," says Decter in a statement. "It’s All Your Fault, Tyler Price! is a fun, irreverent look at a family going through a really hard time—that everyone can relate to."

"This musical is a true passion project for us. It’s about dealing with struggles in our families and how challenging it is to be seen by those closest to us," adds Hanggi. "Through art, our characters learn to explore uncomfortable feelings—things that can be difficult to share or admit. We can’t wait for Los Angeles—where I’ve gotten the opportunity to launch other new musicals—to see our show!"

Community partners for the upcoming production include Epilepsy Foundation, Epilepsy Foundation Los Angeles, and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) Foundation.

Casting and details on ticket sales are to be announced.
