JAN 26, 2010 – First “Snapshots” rehearsal

The first rehearsal of my contribution to the Prospects show “Snapshots” (see previous post, Dec. 13) … I’ve written a song/scene called “I Don’t Speak Italian” about a 14-year-old boy who feels constantly left out of his Italian family, who are all constantly speaking in their native language, which he doesn’t understand.  Directed by Dev Bondarin with a terrific cast including Ali Ewoldt (Maria in the European tour of West Side Story), Doug Shapiro (Prospect’s Iron Curtain) and other fantastic talents!

JAN 11, 2010 – Lonny Price master class

I workshop a couple songs from my audition book in a master class taught by Lonny Price — not just the renowned Broadway veteran actor/director (Merrily We Roll Along, A Class Act) but the original Neil Kellerman in the movie Dirty Dancing — the part I played on tour all last year!
