My Writing

I took part in the writing of the musical DATE.COM, I write and compose standalone musical theatre songs in various styles and genres. 

I wrote, composed, directed and produced several shows under the umbrella of The JEWish Cabaret- a theatre group I co-founded with my writing partner David Djemal. The JEWish Cabaret is an egalitarian theatre collaborative dedicated to challenging the perceptions of the general public on what it means to be Jewish, by creating innovative theatrical productions inspired by our dialogue with our Jewish Identity.

 

The Group's Musical 'Café Named Desire' has been invited to tour in Israel after a successful production in London.  More about The JEWish cabaret: www.thejewishcabaret.com

In Hebrew I am also a published poet, currently collaborating as a lyricist on a new musical theatre song cycle "Sonia". More about my Hebrew writing Here.
