I have had the good fortune to work with a number of wonderful composers on a series of musicals.
Kate Brennan – Kate and I have been working on a series of YA musicals. The first, ALiEN8, was developed in conjunction with McCarter Theater’s Education Program and Ignition Arts in Oklahoma City. The work will premiere at Drexel University in the Fall of 2019. For more information on ALiEN8 and other works by Brennan & White, go to http://www.alien8themusical.wordpress.com/
When a mysterious stranger appears in a small, midwestern town following a devastating tornado, residents are forced to confront their dark past.

“Is Anybody Out There” – Finale from ALiEN8
Our second piece is entitled CLEAN SLATE. It was developed with McCarter Theater’s Education Program in the Summer of 2018

Jeffrey Barg – Jeffrey Barg (aka “The Angry Grammarian”) is a multi-talented, Philly-based composer, performer and humorist. I worked with Barg to turn his newspaper column “The Angry Grammarian” into a musical comedy. The piece has been workshopped at the Players Club of Swarthmore and Pulley & Buttonhole.

A disgruntled copy-editor is given his dream job – writing a newspaper column about his obsession with grammar. The column is a success until he meets, and falls in love with, a woman who is better at grammar than he is.
Sarah Donner – I had the honor working with the prolific and profound indy singer/songwriter Sarah Donner to create the musical LIVE STREAM. The piece was workshopped as part of Bristol-Riveside Theatre’s “America Rising” series.
