REB+VoDKa+VIDEOS

Over the summer, Julia and I had the chance to bring REB+VoDKa+ME online and make a series of videos of songs from the show! It felt like the perfect work to be doing at a time when we’re all longing for connection and (mostly) having to find it through a screen. You can see the videos and find out more about the show at www.rebvodka.me!

We were thrilled to collaborate with director Annie Tippe, video editor Ryan Mazer, audio engineer Andrew Zinsmeister, and performers Ally Bonino, Sam Heldt, MinJi Kim, Adam Lawrence, David Merino, Elexis Morton, Jeanna Phillips, Emily Walton, and Tatiana Wechsler to imagine our work in an online space (which thankfully is the setting of the show!) and bring our vision of this corner of the internet to life.

Special thanks to Iris Dart, Janis Purins, and the Dramatists Guild Foundation for awarding Julia with the 2020 Thom Thomas Award and funding this project!

The Magnificent Seven @ Urban Stages

I’m so excited to be sharing our draft of The Magnificent Seven in a free reading at Urban Stages next Monday, July 15 at 8pm. No reservations necessary, so come on up/down/over/in and hear what we’ve been working on!

Julia and I are so happy to be working once again with director Nikki DiLoreto (with whom we worked when we first developed the project with Fresh Ground Pepper and who has gone on to work on Kiss Me, Kate and the upcoming Soft Power), movement consultant Sunny Hitt (with whom we’re excited to work for the first time), stage manager Melissa Erickson (with whom we just worked on last month’s reading of REB+VoDKa+ME), and music director Rich Silverstein (with whom we work always)!

We’ve got a magnificent cast of new and returning faces, as well, including Kim Blanck (Octet, Alice By Heart), Ally Bonino (Elevator Heart), Nikita Burdein (UCB & The Magnet), Rachel Flynn (Ever After @ The Alliance, Heathers), Kendyl Ito (Soft Power, Wild Goose Dreams), Ellen Condon Macy (Elevator Heart), Madison Mullahey (Mary Poppins national tour), Allison Posner (The Last Song of Eddie Scourge), Lynne Marie Rosenberg (“Famous Cast Words” on All Arts), Ryan Speakman (Hunchback @ Argyle), and Tatiana Wechsler (Benny & Joon @ Paper Mill.)

If you can’t make it, the complete demo will be coming very soon to fulfill all your psycho-gymnastics fantasies!

Want something new? SOMETHING BLUE!

Videos are now online from last month’s concert of songs from Something Blue!  Check out the 9 songs we presented at the D-Lounge, featuring the wonderful Jeremy Morse, Blake Segal, and Phoebe Strole!

Thanks to Joe Barros, Laura Brandel, and everyone at the New York Theatre Barn for welcoming us back to the D-Lounge.  Big thanks to director Ethan Heard, music director Rich Silverstein, and musicians Chris Blacker, Michael Blancaflor, David White, and Andrew Zinsmeister.

We can’t wait to finish this show and share it again sometime soon!

NEW MUSICAL ALERT!

Julia and I are super excited to present songs from our newest musical Something Blue with New York Theatre Barn at the D-Lounge on Monday, Nov. 17 at 7:30pm.  We’re putting everything together for it right now, so stay tuned for updates!

Something Blue tells the story of a man who travels to his ex-boyfriend’s wedding to a woman.  Three people, lots of songs.  Listen to a few of them here!

I’m excited to return to NYTB @ The D-Lounge (almost exactly 7 years after my first NYC concert there) and happy to be sharing the bill with the wonderful Jay Alan Zimmerman!  Be on the lookout for ticket info soon…
