Come on down (or up or over) to Joe’s Pub on Tuesday, December 8 to hear a new song by Julia and me in Let Me Ascertain You: War on Christmas, the next installment of the Civilians’ cabaret series. (It’s about something near and dear to my heart – inconspicuously humming along to songs when things get a little too Jesus-y.) Directed by Ben Kamine and Suzanne Agins, we’re featured alongside friends and fellow writers Ty Defoe & Tidtaya Sinutoke, Erato Kremmyda, Grace McLean, and Michael Friedman. What better way to kick off your secular holiday season?
Julia and I were selected to participate in the 2016 Johnny Mercer Foundation Writers Colony at Goodspeed Musicals in February! We’ll spend a week in (hopefully) snowy East Haddam, CT working on REB + VoDKa + ME among a group of wonderful peers and friends. It’ll be my first time back at Goodspeed since 2007, and I’m thrilled to have the chance to get away (and raid the library there for rare cast recordings…)
The Writers Colony lasts for four weeks, so we’re not sure yet who we’ll be in residence with, but we’re excited by the prospect of getting to spend time with friends and colleagues like Ty Defoe & Tidtaya Sinutoke, Tim Drucker, Brett Ryback, Mark Sonnenblick, Erica Schmidt… So many wonderful people.
Stay tuned for updates from Goodspeed in February!
