Ross Baum

12/17/2019
Ross Baum is a lot of things. He’s a composer, arranger, producer, vocal coach, and a performer and does ALL of those incredibly well. The reason why I wanted to sit down with him NOW is because the new musical Gun+Powder, which he wrote the music for, began rehearsals this week for the world premiere production that will open at the Signature Theater in DC this January.

Melissa Rose Hirsch

It's hard for me to put into words what this conversation means to me. This truly is an insight into the way that Melissa and I communicate with one another on a daily basis.

I met Alex Wyse 3 or 4 years ago after an event and we became quick friends.

He’s worked on and off-broadway, in television, film, as a producer and most recently he and his writing partner, Wesley Taylor, released the third season of their award...

Alexis Scheer

11/7/2019
A conversation with my longtime friend and playwright of Our Dear Dead Drug Lord, Alexis Scheer. Alexis is one of the most intelligent people I know. She is as kind and caring and compassionate as she is articulate and witty. Her knowledge of herself and her experiences is refreshing and straight-up inspiring. I've wanted to sit down and put microphones in front of our mouths for a long time, but with her play currently running at WP Theatre off-Broadway - now seemed like the perfect time to...

Ben Holtzman is a producer, director, teacher and was the assistant to the prince of Broadway himself, Hal Prince. After studying musical theater in college and touring the world with Beauty and the Beast, Ben began his transition to another side of the business.
