NOISE gets a workshop production at The Tank!

The chance to see my musical, Noise, on its feet for the first time was nothing short of incredible. I’m beyond grateful for the amazing team that came together to bring this thing to life, and to The Tank for giving us such a legendary space to call artistic home!

A bit about the piece:

When Dr. Kenton began conducting a study on a college campus, she thought she was on the brink of a biomedical breakthrough. Today, she appears before a jury. Elsewhere, an unlikely friendship between two college students takes a bitter turn. As these stories unfold and begin to echo one another, lines blur between the past as we remember it, and the future as we fear it. Noise is a new musical about the interconnectedness of our pasts and our futures, and the ways we can be blinded by our ghosts.

The cast featured ABSOLUTE HEARTBREAKERS Mary VanArsdel, Rozie Baker, Stefan Schallack, Bryan Freedman and Karen Marulanda. The brilliant Jess Slaght was in the director’s seat, and Jeremy Jacobs shredded it on the keys. We somehow scored scenic designer Jessie Baldinger, lighting designer CJ Pierce, sound designer Lindsey Ratliff, and stage manager Sofia Shah. Basically, I’m the newest hardcore fan of every single one of these people. Check them out, and keep your eyes peeled for some exciting NOISE updates on the horizon!

Songs from a Roof!

I had a ball sharing some new music at Andrew Mullins‘ and John Coyne‘s “The Get Together” this week! The incomparable Stefan Schallack and Lizzie Koennecke were cool enough to learn songs from both Noise and the song cycle I’m working on, Where We Are, some of which were thrown at them basically minutes beforehand! It was so exciting to hear new tunes from the other featured composers, John Coyne and Jaron Barney as well.

Many thanks to everyone who helped bring such a supportive crew to such a scenic roof 🙂

MuseMatch: A Musical Theatre Blind Date!

I’m so excited to be writing a song for the 2022 MuseMatch concert this March at The Greenroom 42!

Created by Bill Coyne and music directed by Nathan Dame, MuseMatch is a concert of new songs born from a series of “blind dates” between composers and performers. I’ve been tasked with writing a song for Kevin Murphy, who I’ve loved getting to know! A bit about Kevin:

As an actor, Kevin was an original company member of the First National Tour of the Tony Award winning musical, The Book of Mormon.  Other credits include the Off-Broadway production of The Awesome 80’s Prom, in addition to With Glee, and The Happy Embalmer at NYMF.  Kevin is the creator/star of Craig Stevens Guide to Making it On Broadway and the Bistro Award winning concert series, If It Only Even Runs a Minute, which have both played to sold out houses around NYC.

I’m so excited to see him breathe life into a song created based on our conversations! Many thanks to the MuseMatch team for the opportunity to have a hand in such a unique collaboration experience. It’s been an absolute pleasure so far, and I can’t wait to hear the other songs which are sprung from this beautiful process!

Tickets for the concert are on sale here: https://thegreenroom42.venuetix.com/show/details/ur5Nk16O8Oisfx96Ncb7/1646447400000
