Here at Sourcebooks we love The Cupcake Club by mother-daughter writing team Sheryl and Carrie Berk, and we were really excited when it was turned into a musical. So imagine how thrilled we were to launch a brand new series by the fabulous mother-daughter duo this summer. The Fashion Academy is Project Runway meets Fame, and not only is it off to a fantastic start, but it’s now been made into a musical too!
On Friday, October 2, Fashion Academy the Musical premiered in NYC. Set at the fictional Fashion Academy of Brooklyn with a script written by Sheryl Berk, and a poignant, bouncy, upbeat soundtrack, the entire audience couldn’t wait to see their favorite series come to life in true FAB fashion. The night kicked off with VIP red carpet event where NYC’s most fashionable young divas were in attendance. After the fantastic performance, fans gathered for an after-party where they met with authors Sheryl and Carrie Berk and the cast of Fashion Academy the Musical for a book signing.
We were overjoyed to see Sheryl and Carrie’s wonderful storytelling returned to the stage, and everyone agreed that the night was “SEW FAB!”
Fashion Academy main character Mickey Williams would be proud of these Fashion Academy fans who were Runway Ready!
In attendance was Susanna Paliotta, star of Bravo’s Game of Crowns.
