Noise

Full Length Musical; 2w, 2m.

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 contemporary musical about the human instinct to assign reason to the unpredictable, and the ways we can be blinded by our ghosts.

Noise received a reading at Emerging Artists Theatre’s 2022 New Work Series, and is slated for a six-week residency at The Tank this fall! Music from Noise has been performed at the York Theatre’s New Works Concert, the Titchfield Festival Theatre’s New Songwriters Concert (UK), the Chicago Dramatists Guild, the Allen & Gray Musical Festival’s New Voices Concert Series, the Tin Pan Alley 2 Concert Series, and Under the Arch Incubator’s New Work Cabaret (featuring the national touring cast of The Band’s Visit!)

Painting Faye Salvez

Full Length Musical; 4w, 3m.

Three years after Faye Salvez went missing, her family and friends still have no closure. When a young artist promises he can capture Faye’s essence in a family portrait by speaking with her loved ones, Faye’s friends and family gather for a series of interviews. Memories clash and old wounds are reopened throughout the course of one day in the Salvez family home. Is it always the responsibility of an artist to present the truth?

Painting Faye Salvez has been developed at the New York Musical Festival (NYMF), the Library at the Public Theater, Tuacahn Theatre’s New Works Festival, and Northwestern University. Music from Painting Faye Salvez has been performed at the York Theatre’s New Works Concert, the Chicago Dramatists Guild, the Allen & Gray Musical Festival’s New Voices Concert, the Titchfield Festival Theatre’s New Songwriters Concert (UK), and Under The Arch Incubator’s New Work Cabaret (featuring the national touring cast of The Band’s Visit!).
