So it appears to be a very long time since I have posted. Let us catch up.
In May I had a concert in my house (conveniently on my birthday so it was a bit of a double celebration) and it was the most amazing night. It was really the first time I performed many of the songs in front of a large group- and people who are important to me. It was such a special night for me (My daughter even flew in from college to surprise me). Everyone’s reactions to the music seemed extremely genuine and I felt good knowing I was on the right track.
SO I had had some other performances scheduled for last Spring but something wasn’t sitting entirely right with with the book. I postponed those performances and took this summer to make some changes. This obviously required composing a few more songs as well which have yet to be recorded. I have to say I am now feeling much better about the book. It’s also running a nice 85 minutes which is perfect for a straight run through with no intermission. But the point is, I am happy with it and at this point we have to just start getting it in front of people.
Fortunately, Woman’s Philanthropy, a division of Jewish Federation of Philadelphia, will be hosting a performance on December 4. All our welcome. And on January 12, the Friendship circle will be hosting an event as well. I am soo excited about both of these events because I think they will be the perfect audiences for this show. I am also going to look to plan a reading in NY for early Spring.
I am still working with Kim, Rebecca, and Jason Neri will be music directing. The three of them are so committed and wonderful and I look forward to finding the perfect JAKE! Oh- and playing the role of Adam I have Jackson Preisser who is amazingly adorable (an my daughter’s best friend).
Below I will try to add videos from the concert. Hope for more updates sooner than later.
