A full length musical

A romantic action-comedy date musical about Roxane's refusal to be merely decorative when

it comes to living her life, and this while questing for True Love and her Hero of True Romance.

Musical language is a blend of Jazz and Renaissance musical styles which parallels the

mashup of today’s slang with the preciosity (refined speech) of some 16th century Parisians.
