The Doormen, an entirely original musical (remember those?!) for which I wrote the music, alongside book and lyrics by Joe Boover and Victor Verhaeghe, was presented as part of the New York Theatre Festival in early May at Teatre Latea. Currently looking for the next development opportunities. For more information, email TheDoormenMusical@yahoo.com

Jerry Lee Lewis was the original bad boy of Rock & Roll. Led by Jason Cohen, who has played Lewis in nearly 80 cities across North America, Great Balls of Fire brings the ivory-smashing superstar to life. With hits from the ‘50s and beyond, including “Good Golly, Miss Molly,” “Shake, Rattle, and Roll,” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” this electrifying act will have you dancing in your seat.

UPCOMING: 3 performances at Teatro Latea, NYC, May 2022

Danny Pinkerton has wanted to be the world's greatest doorman since his father abandoned him 18 years ago. Now, on his 18th birthday, he is ready to free himself from the chains of his foster mommy Bryce Dallas Howard (not the actress) and pursue his dreams of opening doors and hearts at the Wiffenpoof Condominiums. But will long standing Doorman-Of-The-Year Brock Turner Kurosawa take him in or take him down?

THINGS I LIKE

 

An ever-evolving assortment of, you guessed it, things I like. A place to share what speaks to me and to promote work being done by my friends.

Reach Out by Molly Beck

Molly's book is a guide to networking for those who hate networking. Her approach has been a welcome daily practice over the past few months. 

Sara Bareilles's Amidst The Chaos
Like all of her writing, this has some heartbreaking ballads and empowering uptempos. No one writes truth like Sara.


Adam Neely's YouTube videos
These have taught me more about advanced music theory and the application of it than anyone I've ever met.

The Justice Arts Coalition which brings together artists with artistic-minded prisoners to connect over the transformative and healing power of art.

The eclectic range of music being made by my friends: Ashworth (EDM), Jared Freiberg, Youth In A Roman Field (ghost folk), j.mulay, and my cousins Jo. Cohen and Introvert.
 

The Color Of LawT which tells the forgotten history of American government housing segregation and how the effects compounded over the years. It's the most engrossed I've ever been reading non-fiction
