New Musicals Born in LA!
Musi-Cal is part of the Festival’s ongoing priority to create community among Southern California’s composers, lyricists and book writers. These Musi-Cal evenings offer an opportunity for the writers to get to know one another and for the audience to get a first peak at new musical works in progress.
Maltby & Shire’s “quiet, observant, wry” (Huffington Post) 1989 revue is definitely “more than just devilishly clever” (New York Times).
Funny, poignant, absurd or risqué, this “bookless” musical celebrates the patterns in our lives that inevitably bring us…CLOSER THAN EVER. Featuring Good People Theater’s award-winning Music Director Corey Hirsch—at a 9′ concert grand!—plus five other talented “grown-ups” in a charming and unique concert venue: the Irwin & Rhoda Treibitz Memorial Hall inside Hollywood Piano’s Burbank showroom.

David will be returning to the Musical Theatre Guild for the first production of their 2014-15 season. With a jazzy, driving score by the late Marvin Hamlisch, SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS is based on the 1957 movie starring Burt Lancaster as a ruthless, all-powerful newspaper columnist named J. J. Hunsecker (so Walter Winchell couldn’t sue them), and Tony Curtis as Sidney Falcone – a smarmy, small-time press agent desperate to curry J.J.’s favor. Although this edgy, dark show got seven nominations, including Best Musical, only John Lithgow, for his leading performance as Hunsecker, went home with a 2002 Tony® Award. Gossip, lies, name-dropping, betrayal, backstabbing and murder – typical story about the media.
