But what if the world discovers that Walter’s body of work consists of actual bodies? A bebop-inflected black comedy/satire.

BERNICE BOBS HER HAIR (Festival 2011) by Adam Gwon and Julia Jordan

Young men and women dance and flirt and engage in character assassination in the time-honored pursuit of romance and status. The story is retold with an eye to the future which Fitzgerald anticipates but could not have predicted.

Hour Theatre Company, York Theatre and thBIG RED SUN has had additional development at 11University of Nebraska.

A teenage boy unearths a dark family secret as he searches for his long-lost father through the bewildering landscape of post-WWII America… where innocence has vanished, and the simple melodies of Kern and Berlin have been replaced by the dizzying energy of jazz and the birth of rock-and-roll.

LEGENDALE had its World Premiere at Fredericia Teater in Denmark in March 2017and its American Premiere at Human Race Theatre Co. in Fall 2017.

Legendale is an original, contemporary comedy about the power of fantasy.

When the game world takes a sudden turn for the unexpected, Andy and his avatar must both learn how to summon their inner warriors. Legendale blends romance, adventure and virtual reality, over a pop-infused score.

Since they were at the NAMT Festival, THE NOTEWORTHY LIFE OF HOWARD BARNES was presented at Goodspeed Musicals’ Festival of New Musicals.

Desperate to escape from the show and get his normal life back, Howard teams up with Maggie, an aspiring actress who works in his office. Together, the two embark on a fantastical quest through the realm of musical theater. Along the way, Howard discovers that he must let go of the past and open himself up to the possibility of love. In doing so, he learns to embrace the music. Equal parts satire, romantic comedy, and love letter to the American musical, The Noteworthy life of Howard Barnes is intended for people who love musical theater, and their spouses who hate it.

TRIANGLE had its World Premiere at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley and additional development at Goodspeed Musicals Johnny Mercer Writers Colony and Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma. The writers received the 2016 Fred Ebb Award.

Summertime—don’t let the livin’ get too easy! Part I

Published

on

So tempting, isn’t it, to while away the summer in a cozy hammock or beach chair.  But then by Labor Day you have nothing to show for all that valuable time.  Here are a few suggestions that you might find enticing:

Be a Pioneer!

Or at least take a ride on one!  The 1885 Schooner Pioneer leaves from the South Street Seaport and a sunset ride around lower Manhattan is not to be missed.  https://southstreetseaportmuseum.org

Or Be a Reader!

There are many lists of what you should/could be reading, but I’d rather recommend authors you’ll be grateful to get to know.

NYC-based Amor Towles has a new book out Table for Two, a collection of short stories, the final of which is a prequel to his first novel.  Each of his four books is a complete joy, leaving one with a most satisfying experience.  If you plan to travel, his middle books are perfect companions.

A NYC transplant from Virginia, the brilliant Tom Wolfe wrote many long, and worthwhile, novels. But for a rather jaundiced peek inside the NYC art world, try his uncharacteristically short yet powerfully revealed The Painted Word. You’ll never see museums in the same light again.

Transsexuality is a topic that can be difficult to understand. Jan Morris, who wrote many books as James Morris, tells a tale of transition in Conundrum, a brief book detailing his motivation in a way that was intelligent and easy to understand.

If you’ve ever wondered about what it takes to produce a musical, composer Douglas J. Cohen reveals all the travails and joys of the experience in How To Survive a Killer Musical, about what it took to produce his musicalization of No Way to Treat a Lady.  It’s a must-read for anyone seriously interested in theatre.

Fill a Day with Fun and Games and Music

Many remember when it was known as “Needle Park”, but Bryant Park is now approaching amusement park status. A quick check of their website reveals a cornucopia of events to please every palate. Movie nights, concerts, theater and games galore are offered—all for free! A recent visit provided a relaxing respite of ragtime in the middle of an afternoon provided by Terry Waldo and his band.
