It was quite the experience opening my Off-Broadway show in NYC. "27 rue de Fleurus" opened March 6, 2008 and will run through April 13. My collaborator, Ted Sod wrote the book and co-wrote the lyrics-- I composed the music. The show is about the life and times of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, told from Alice's point of view. I flew out in late Jan for week one of musical rehearsals, and met our musical director, John Bell (who totally rocks)-- also met our lovely cast, all talented vets-- lots of Broadway credits, and the nicest 5 women I could hope to work with. I came back for tech rehearsals at the end of Feb, and with a little muscle, the show was up and running! It's a lovely show, and I'm proud to be a part of the process-- I have certainly learned a lot! Thanks to everybody for all your hard work, whew!
