The Man In The Ceiling – Informal reading of the show in January in NYC. Full reading with full cast in July. Production details announced not long after that. I LOVE this show and love that it’s come back to life. Announcement of director and producer to come soon.
I Am Harvey Milk – Doing a presentation of the piece with singers and a piano in NYC on January 31. Then, the World Premiere in San Francisco June 27 and 28. Guess who may be playing the role of Harvey?
The Addams Family across the globe continues:

Additional cities in 2013:
– Lima, Péru and a five-city tour of Italy.
– US National tour resumes in February, 2013
2014: Keep an eye out for London, Germany and Japan.
And I thought I’d continue to feature the feature in the Washington Post
from summer, 2012
john & jen – Possible one-night event in NYC. I’ll update ASAP.
Peepshow in Las Vegas – Enters its fifth year in March. Crazy successful! A new number went in the show in December, 2012. We like to keep updating it.
A Little Princess – Music Theater International (MTI) is licensing the show. It’s available for YOU to produce! Also, there’s a strong possibility of future commercial life. Stay tuned!
2 possible new projects I hope to start in 2013. Mum’s the word for now. But I’ll announce as soon as I can.
Seminary: Graduation is June 8, 2013. I may graduate if I stop writing this update and get back to my homework! I will miss being in school so in September, 2013 I’m beginning Spanish language immersion classes so I can become fluent. I took four years of Spanish in high school – just enough to be frustrated every time I try to actually speak!
Tough Mudder the second: Well, I’d hoped to do my second Tough Mudder in February but have been sidelined from running since August. Hoping I can get to one by the summer or, at least, do a sprint triathlon. Long-range goal: Do a 1/2 Iron Man in 2015 when I’m 50!
The incredible Judith Clurman pulled together a choral cycle called “Sing Out, Mr. President” that was recorded and included on her CD “Celebrating The American Spirit”. The text comes from US presidents through the ages. I wrote the
Woodrow Wilson piece called “I Believe in Democracy”. See this great article on Huffington Post about the cycle.
