His musical Rope premiered at the 2016 New York Winterfest and was given a run at the Robert Moss Theatre in New York City and recently at the Tenth Avenue Theater in San Diego, California.

His show Intruder is set in the studio of Newell Chancellor, a revered composer for musical theatre. Newell and his assistant, Michelle, are working on songs for a new production. Suddenly Wade, when an intruder, appears. Both Newell and Michelle feign ignorance of who Wade is and what he might want; but the audience learns that the uncouth Wade has intimate connections with each of them.
