Spotlight on Musical Theatre Composition: “Pay 2 Play”

I am proud to announce that I am the composer for a brand new musical, currently in the works, called Pay2Play. It’s a satire of Philadelphia politics. Funnyman Brian Kerrigan is the author of the book/lyrics and he’s also the show’s producer. Writing the music to complement his hysterical, witty, amazing script is entirely too much fun.

We’ll be casting 5 roles for a web-based mini filmed version of the musical [casting early in June, shooting in August]. Please stay tuned for more updates on the project!

  • For more information about auditions and the web-based mini musical, check out our listing on Backstage.com

  • To hear demo piano-vocal recordings of excerpts of songs from the show, check out VoiceMakeDown’s Soundcloud page (the official SoundCloud site for our show’s production company)
