Prospect’s Musical Theatre Labs

Over the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of writing short musicals for Prospect Theatre, sharing the evening with other short pieces by a stellar list of writers. In 2013’s Portraits, Dan Acquisto and I wrote The Art of Joey Feldman, about a rigid and literal-minded safety inspector for a flying rig company who rediscovers the meaning of magic (check out one of the songs). Then last year at The Times Center, Clay Zambo and I were a part of By The Numbers, an evening of five-minute musicals based on the numbers 1 – 12. We were number one – literally – with Decide, about a young woman forced to choose only one scoop of ice cream, and the reverberations throughout her life.
