B R E A T H E a new musical 

 

Premiering Friday May 14th on @OverturePlus 

 

Written as the Covid-19 pandemic unfolded, #BreatheOnStage follows five couples grappling with the virus’s impact on their lives, families, relationships, society, and health. Told in five interlocking suites - each with a different songwriting team and director - B R E A T H E features an all-star cast that includes Tony Award-winners @KelliOHara and @brianstokesm, @PattiMurin, @ColinDonnell, @DenéeBenton, @rubenjcarbajal, @MattfDoyle, @MaxmClayton, @daniel.j.yearwood, @toliverreid and @joshdnyc.

Sharon Vaughn and I wrote the score for the third vignette “Swelling and Irritation,” which was directed by Lorin Latarro-Kopell and starred Patti Murin and Colin Donnell.

 

Lynne Shankel wrote killer orchestrations for all of the vignettes - and Meg Zervoulis

provided musical supervision, with an assist by Noah Teplin. Dan Rudin produced the Nashville orchestra recordings - Jeff Calhoun was the supervising director for the entire production, which was filmed at the 92nd Street Y in February 2021. Jodi Picoult and Tim Mcdonald conceived of the piece, and wrote the libretto for four of the vignettes.
