"Extremely catchy songs by Doug Besterman and Sharon Vaughn..."  Jesse Green, NY Times - May 18, 2021

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.

Check out the music from our vignette, from the cast recording on Broadway Records.
