April is over and May is upon us. But what a fabulous month April was! Chelsea, my incredible co-composer, and I spent a few weeks squeezing every bit of creativity out of our brains, creating the last few songs for MARIAN: we now have a “want” song, an “11th hour” song and a finale!! And they’re all winners!
We then held an artist’s retreat in NYC at the end of April, where we had the opportunity to rehearse the songs and do a read-through with a phenomenal cast of Broadway performers. It was such a gift to be able to listen to the score sung by those voices. I’m still in awe…we created a musical!It’s still a bit too long, and I’m sure we’ll make more changes as we go along, but for now, we couldn’t be happier.
For the April artist’s retreat, I was able to reconnect with some friends from my days at the Donna Summer Musical, including Kaye Tuckerman and Andrew Wildman Foster. It was a glorious time, surrounded by beautiful people and great food provided by our own Chef Michael!
For the month of May, I’m in Louisville, KY, working with two other SUMMER alums: Ken and Christina Robinson, as MD on their new musical, Still Ready. If you’re in the area, please come see the show!
More updates coming soon. As always, thank you for your encouragement and support. I couldn’t do this without you ❤️
