8 05 2011

Fellow critics and friends, my new family musical premieres next weekend! One reason I have been quieter on the critical scene lately is because I have been music directing my LA premiere Thank You, Mr. Falker, part of the LA Festival of New American Musicals. I would love to see you there!
