"Cherry Lane Theatre's award-winning Mentor Project will begin its 13th season with Elizabeth Rose's one-woman musical, Relative Pitch, beginning Feb. 21 at Manhattan's Cherry Lane Studio Theatre," reports Playbill.  The article continues, "Directed by Gretchen Cryer -- who will also serve as Rose's mentor -- the limited engagement will continue through March 3."

Gretchen (Kiger) Cryer is a 1957 graduate of DePauw University, where she majored in English (literature). She and her DePauw classmate, Nancy Ford, composed the music and lyrics for shows including I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road, The American Girls Revue and Anne of Green Gables.

A new musical by Ford and Cryer, Einstein and the Roosevelts, received its world premiere at DePauw in October 2008. Details can be found in this previous story.
