MUSICAL "13" ON BROADWAY
The Great Squirrel Uprising at The LaGuna Playhouse!
I have written the music and lyrics (and sometimes book) to five other musicals. Scripts and demos are available upon request. They are:
Corporate Law, a Musical Comedy - a spoof of life in a New York City lawfirm, the show follows the rise and fall of Johnny True on his first few days on the job at Weasel, Waxel & Whine.
Miracle in Miami, a one hour children's show, produced in 1995 at the Mazur Theater in New York. A burnt-out, fed-up, Santa Claus goes to Miami for his annual vacation where he is befriended by Monica Stein, a Jewish girl just shy of her Bat Mitzvah, and Monica's romantically inclined Nana. Eventually, Santa relocates to the Everglades, but problems with his elves and nosy tourists propel him to make a decision about returning to the North Pole. [review]
Just Desserts, a two act children's show, produced in 1993 at Fordham University. Based on my book, this musical tells the tale of John Applefeller and his epic quest to overcome the curse of changing desserts and win the annual Worldwide Dessert Contest held every year in his hometown of Appleton. Special features include: rhyming dessert chefs, an arrogant dessert-making villain, a head judge with a caramel apple permanently attached to his face, and roller-skating apple pies.
And way back in college I wrote a show called Twice Upon a Time (a musical with Brigadoon overtones) and Paul Bunyan: A Musical Tall-Tale, a tongue-in-cheek, celebration of the great lumberjack and all things tall-taled.
