4.3: Third ever reading of my musical Hereville with book and lyrics by Robby Sandler, additional book by Jess Kaufman at Playwrights Horizons.
In April I had my first ever reading scheduled for my musical Sophie Blanchard's High-Flying' Rock'n'Roll Extravaganza at Asolo Rep in Florida. A month out and the event was completely sold out. It goes without saying that the event has been cancelled, but I hope to find a way to get this show out into the world as soon as folks can assemble again. Also hoping to post some Oneida news soon and maybe start some new projects.
10.17-11.24: Wrote and recorded the theme music for Ravenswood Manor: a Camp-Horror-Soap-Opera in 12 Episodes written by Justin Sayre (the rhyming verse at the top of the music is by my frequent collab Robby Sandler) and being performed episodically at the Celebration Theatre. There is. Accordion.
Scored this pilot for Frankemel Films. Check it out the nifty animated opening sequence! The song features me on approximately three instruments (including one I don't play...guess which) and several layers of Lizzie choir. Can't wait for you to see the whole thing!
3.3: Second ever reading of my musical Misha Loves Ja Ja More Than Cheese with book and lyrics by Jerry Colker, directed by Andy Cadiff at Theatre 40 in Beverly Hills.
7.22-8.25: Played bass for this production of Annie Get Your Gun at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. Directed by Sarna Lapine and music directed by Andy Einhorn.
10.5: Appeared as Slappy in a reading of Jacey Powers and Ashkon Davaran's wonderful new musical Eighth Grade President.You can tell I liked it because I used an adjective.
