A collision of musical theatre, photography, and pop/rock music
35MM: A MUSICAL EXHIBITION pushes the limits of self-expression to create an art form utterly its own. A collection of ‘snapshot stories’ are woven together as each of the evening’s original songs is performed while the audience is immersed in the stunning photography that inspired it. 35MM brings the connection between pleasures visual and aural into razor-sharp focus, creating a singular, multi-sensory emotional journey.
"When theater pundits talk about the future of Broadway and the new generation of composers, they're talking about artists like Ryan Scott Oliver ... a major new voice in musical theater" — Entertainment Weekly

"...the songs are not related except that they are all vibrant expressions of a rainbow of emotions. When pieced together...this musical is a thought-provoking, soul-searching exploration of two mediums fused together as one...There are intense group numbers featuring the powerful ensemble that really move the audience." - DC Metro Theatre Arts
"The genius of this show is how Ryan Scott Oliver's music convey's the message of Matthew Murphy's photographs. I was constantly amazed at how the songs really spoke to each picture individually. Ryan's music is a fresh sound that was very enjoyable to listen to." - Call Me Adam
