Songwriting Sisters Musical DrSue: Story

Story: Sue, a mature (“golden girl”) singer-songwriter who sings standards with a jazz band, is fed up with rejections from songwriting contests. She has a strange dream, where she meets the Director of the Heavenly Choir/Golden Age Section. The Director wants to kick out Dorothy Fields, the only woman in the original Songwriters Hall of Fame and turn it into an all boys club. Dorothy and the Director make a bet. If the Director wins, Dorothy resigns, if Dorothy wins, she replaces him as Director.

The bet involves a songwriting contest. Dorothy must motivate a living female songwriter (Sue) to win a contest by writing a song for every month. The only way she can communicate is when Sue semi-quotes one of Dorothy’s songs. Down on earth, Sue semi-quotes Dorothy’s lyric, and Dorothy appears, wearing a chic 1930s hat!

Sue sings a calendar year of songs and meets the challenge. Dorothy wins her bet with the misogynist Director, kicks him down to Hades (where he directs a choir called “The Shady Ladies of Hades”), and becomes the new Choir Director. Sue, with renewed confidence, goes on singing and writing songs!
