Video from Cast and Loose
I had such an amazing time attending my first Cast and Loose at Joe's Pub! Here's Lynne performing the song we wrote for the show!
Gordon and I were so psyched to be the featured writing team for Underscore Theatre Co's Galentine's Day concert -- featuring a whole set of woman-power songs (we've got a couple of those...) We were disappointed we couldn't be there for the show, but oh look, there's a video from the show!

A friend from grad school, the lovely and talented Katya Stanislavskaya, serves as the musical theatre program director at Western Carolina University. Every year the seniors in the program travel to NYC for a showcase concert, and this year two students are going to be performing songs of mine (one with Rob, one with Gordon.) We'll get to do a coaching with the kids, then the showcase itself will be on Monday 3/6 at Access Theatre's Gallery Space at 380 Broadway at 2pm and at 8pm. Should be fun!
The wonderful Lynne Marie Rosenberg asked Gordon and I to write a song for her upcoming show. Here's the info!
Returning for its 5th installment at Joe's Pub at The Public, CastAndLoose Live! features stars of the stage and screen bringing real, verbatim casting notices to life. Join us this evening for ageism, ableism, fat shaming, transphobia, and everything breakdowns have to say about the body. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts. As always, come laugh at the problem while funding the solution. Hosted by Lynne Marie Rosenberg (High Maintenance)
