Highlights

Playwright, librettist, lyricist.  I currently have a full length award-winning musical that needs a composer: KAZOO: A Musical Myth.  Script has been successfully workshopped.  Seeking someone with knowledge of classical Broadway style crossed with a modern musical sensibility.  Must have their own recording equipment and ability to make demos.
