Julia and I were so happy to contribute material to Prospect Theater Company’s 2015 Teen Summer Intensive. The show – News To Me – was a revue of new songs with topics pulled from the NYTimes, with each writing team assigned a section of the paper. Julia and I wrote from the Science & Technology section.
Our piece was performed beautifully on Saturday night by four young actresses (one of whom also provided really lovely illustrations to accompany the performance.) Thanks to Dev Bondarin and Cara Reichel for including us!
Videos of last month’s concert have made their way online. It was a lovely reunion of a night, full of great songs sung and played by great friends and fellow Clevelanders. There really is no place like home (and I’m so lucky that so much of my home is still with me here in NYC!)
Ms. Amy Linden, ladies and gentlemen. (Mrs. Peters, if you’re nasty.) Singing “Crooked River” from Across the River. As my constant collaborator/muse, she’s sung just about everything I’ve ever written. This was the first time I got to hear her sing this one, and she didn’t disappoint! (Obviously.)
Amy was joined at the start of the concert by Lauren Geber and Hannah Delmonte for a powerhouse rendition of “Nobody Knows” from Pregnancy Pact.
