Just got great news! The awesome version of Letters To Daddy, (the kids musical that I wrote the songs for) has been invited to be performed at the New York Musical Theater Festival a.k.a. NYMF
The project originated with Bill Rodman requesting me to write songs for his god daughter, Rilee O’Neill. Along the way, Jill Jayson, an awar winning playwright and director from Westport CT adapted it for elementary age children. Her version, called “Letters To Daddy, Jr.” has been invited to NYMF.
In case you don’t know what NYMF is, it is considered the “Sundance Festival” of Musical Theater. Many of the recent TONY award winners have premiered at NYMF. So it’s kind of a BIG deal. No. It is VERY DEFINITELY A BIG DEAL.
As it turns out, I will be part of the show, accompanying on guitar. I’m excited!
Here’s an article from Broadway World with all the details:
