Vaulting to Flint

First up in 2019!

Julia and I are so excited to travel to Flint, Michigan for the first full public reading of The Magnificent Seven in the Flint Repertory Theatre’s New Works Festival!

The festival runs January 18-20 and will also include new work by Greg Kotis (Urinetown), Abbie Spallen (Pumpgirl), and Amber Palmer. Our reading will take place on Sunday, January 20 at 7pm, directed by Flint Rep’s Producing Artistic Director Michael Lluberes.

2018.

What a year! From the world premiere of The Loneliest Girl In the World at Diversionary Theatre this summer to a beautiful week at SPACE at Ryder Farm this fall; from artistic homes at the 92Y to Page 73; from beginning drafts of Choreomania and Left to finishing new drafts of The Magnificent Seven and Something Blue –  I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my work on both coasts this year, celebrate a decade of collaboration with Julia Meinwald, and, best of all, getting to work with amazing artists like:

Shaleah Adkisson, Renee Albulario, Delaney Amatrudo, Ian Axness, Elisa Benzoni, Sash Bishoff, Ally Bonino, Stephen Brotebeck, Bonnie Durben, Rachel Flynn, Isaac Fowler, David Friedlander, Holly Gould, Steve Gouveia, Sam Heldt, Peter Herman, Victoria Huston-Elem, Lauren King Thompson, Joey Kirkpatrick, Matt Lescault-Wood, Lily Lester, Allison Lian, Ellen Macy, Patrick Marion, Christina Martin, Matt Morrow, Kate Morton, Allison Spratt Pearce, Robin Sanford Roberts, Lynne Marie Roseberg, Keith Rubin, Johnny Shea, Hana Slevin, Kendra Stockton, Robbie Collier Sublett, Shaun Tuazon-Martin, Ryan Everett Wood, Marci Anne Wuebben, and more…

I’m so excited to reconnect with some of these wonderful people, and meet even more wonderful people, in 2019!

Hey LA, we’re coming your way!

Or at least our song is!

We’re so happy to be featured in the final A Little New Music concert of 2018, and to give LA a little taste of REB+VoDKa+ME!

On Thursday, December 20, the wonderful Laura Nicole Harrison and Kim Dalton will be singing “Oh Killer” in the concert, which also features performances of songs by friends like Eli Bolin and Mike Pettry. If you’re out west, check it out!

REB+VoDKa+ME goes to the opera

REB+VoDKa+ME will be featured in American Lyric Theater‘s 2019 ALT Alumni: Composers and Librettists in Concert performance!

Excerpts from the show will be performed by classically trained singers at the Morgan Library and Museum on Sunday, March 3 at 3:00pm. We’re sharing the bill with excerpts from new operas by Christopher Cerrone & Stephanie Fleischmann and Kamala Sankaram & Jerre Dye, some of whom are alumni of the ALT Composer Librettist Development Program with Julia.

It’s going to be a whole new way to hear the score (including with a few live instruments.) Tickets are available now!
