In 1996, he began a rich, collaborative experience with Barbara Zinn Krieger, librettist, lyricist and artistic director for Making BooKs Sing. Sky Boys: The Making of the Empire State, which struck a responsive chord with both audiences and critics, and 2012's return of The Butterfly.
The Chocolate Ambassador never made it past a lab production at the Vineyard Theatre, but I've only recently digitized the original demo recording from 1991. It has some great singing by my collaborator and Broadway great, Camille Saviola and a generous, (considering his Falsettos schedule), Stephen Bogardus.
I was delighted to be the Family of Artists Honoree for 2013 at the Making Books Sing Gala, "A Salute to Song" . My colleague Sybille Pearson (coming off her recent "Giant" success at the Public Theater), was also honored.
