I’ve been working with arranger Greg Stephens on the published book of my Cabaret Rock Opera THE 7 DEADLY PLEASURES and will be going to the ASCAP Musical Theater Workshops in LA in February to learn more about the art (and business) of the musical.
While I’m down there, I’ll be playing at the wonderfully magical EDWARDIAN BALL Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb 10
THURSDAY, FEB 1:
