Theater

"And Then They Came For Me"

Incidental music written for a production of the play, "And Then They Came For Me."
Performed at Alter High School, Kettering, OH. Directed by David Brush

"And Then They Came for Me" is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, the ensemble-driven "And Then They Came for Me" breaks new ground.

 

"Antigone"

Composer and Music Director for the men’s chorus.  Presented in association with Columbia University. Directed by Isabelle Kettle. Translated by Anne Carson.

A fresh, contemporary adaptation of Sophokles' tragedy from T.S. Eliot Prize-winning poet Anne Carson. When her dead brother is decreed a traitor, Antigone refuses to allow his body to be left unburied beyond the city walls. Defying her uncle who governs, she forges ahead with a funeral alone, placing personal allegiance before politics, a tenacious act that will trigger a cycle of destruction.
