Thanks for visiting!   I must have listened to my parent’s Broadway recordings too much during my formative years to escape getting hooked on musical theater, because I was hooked even before seeing my first show.  Do you feel the same way?   Even when not directing, I’m a regular member of musical theater orchestras.  Also, Gus Kambeitz gives us some tips for musicians wishing to play in pit orchestras.

Here are some of the shows I’ve waved the wand at:
