Very happy to announce this today – we’re doing a reading for a new musical, with Book by Bobby Goldman and Music and Lyrics by yours truly, directed by Rob Ashford. The cast is staggeringly talented and I can’t wait to get to work on this.
Here’s the announcement on Playbill:
What can I say? I might just be the laziest website updater in history.
I finally added videos from the Joe’s Pub show. From over a year ago. You can check them out in the Video section or on my Youtube page.
More updates soon. “Soon” being a relative word.
The final shows for Cutman are this weekend. It has been an amazing experience and the cast and production are spectacular. It has been a dream come true to have had the opportunity to write the music and lyrics for such a beautiful story and to get to see it on its feet. www.goodspeed.org for tickets.
Clicking on the video below won’t work, but you can actually just click here to see it.
I don’t have the words to express my gratitude for everyone who made last night possible. Thank you to those who helped put the show together, came to the show, watched online, promoted the show, or were otherwise supportive and sending good vibes. Thank you to the amazingly talented performers who lent their talent to the evening. Thanks to Lance Horne for making it possible, and to Cory and Jared for supplying the story behind the songs. It was an unforgettable evening, and I feel very lucky today.
I will post the link to the archived recording when it is available.
Countdown is starting for the 4/16 Joe’s Pub show: Songs I Drew. I’m excited to announce that Pamela Quinn from the Sweet Divines has been added to the lineup of performers, making it even stronger. Here’s the final list:
You can get tickets from the Joe’s Pub website or you can call 212.967.755.
Please help me spread the word by inviting friends, Tweeting, etc. This is really going to be a fantastic show!
basement band is not just made up of great friends of mine, they are also kickass musicians with awesome songs, and they put on a great show. i’m always psyched to sit in on piano with them, and I’m looking forward to playing with them at the Living Room on Wednesday. Skye Steele, fiddler extraordinaire, will also be a a guest, so it’s gonna be a romp! Check ’em out at http://basementband.net
Tonight (Saturday, April 2nd) I’m going to be performing with the amazingly talented Amber Martin at her show at the Wild Project – Amber Alert. She’s one of my favorite performers – so funny, but with an incredible voice behind it all. We’re going to be performing a duet, though I think I’m not supposed to reveal what it is. You can get tickets here
Then, tomorrow night (Sunday, April 3rd), I’m performing two beautiful songs by the writing team Selda Sahin and Greg Turner in their show “Mercury in Retrograde” at 7PM at the Duplex.
And–we’re less than two weeks from my Joe’s Pub show! So much to be excited for…
A few months back, my friend (and amazing musician/composer) Lance Horne and I were throwing around the idea of doing a night of my songs, but with other singers performing the songs, before I head off to the Goodspeed for Cutman. I’ve never done anything like that when it wasn’t an actual theatrical performance, but he has helped me turn the idea into a reality. Under his music direction, we’re putting together a night of amazing performers at Joe’s Pub. In fact, I can hardly believe that all of these ridiculously talented performers will be part of this concert – I feel humbled and honored, but, more than anything, just plain old excited. Some of the performers are dear friends, while others are artists whom I have admired and am only just now getting to know:
Thursday, April 14th, at 9:30 PM. Go pick up your tickets now at the Joe’s Pub website.
I couldn’t be more excited about this announcement: Cutman will have its first regional production this spring, under the aegis of Michael Price and Goodspeed Musicals.
I wrote the music and lyrics to this show, and the book was written by my friends and writing partners Jared Coseglia and Cory Grant. We started work on this show several years ago. Its first incarnation was as a reading at the New York Musical Theater Festival, and we’ve been working on it ever since. I couldn’t be more excited to finally bring this show to an audience.
More details to come!
