“Well, all good things come to an end... or in this case we moved Off-Broadway!

Setting up in the new theater at New World Stages was almost like taking the show back to the New York Theater Workshop, where it all began. The theater is much smaller (499 seats), and my setup was again built on a platform and suspended from the ceiling of the theater by steel cables.

I had full view of the stage for all the tricks I needed to do with the actors, and it was much more intimate for the actors. Needless to say I had to condense everything into a much smaller space, accessible only by a vertical ladder. There was hardly any room to move and I did a lot of playing from a seated position. The pianist, Greg Anthony Rassen, was on a similar platform, directly across the theater from me.

Almost all of my ‘toys’ were within arm’s reach, and several of the larger instruments like the bass drum and 8 foot long thunder sheet (lower center of photo) were tied to the light grid and suspended above my head.”

"It hasn’t always been easy (and it’s certainly very odd right now!) but personally I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I’ve heard a few things along the way that have informed how I’ve thought about New York City and the idea of 'making it'”.

"The musical experience of recording a Broadway cast album ranges from easy to difficult depending on the circumstances. I find that the two factors that contribute most to the quality of the experience are: 1) how good the band is; and 2) how soon after you started the show you record the album"

"When I was preparing to conductNice Work if You Can Get It, I began by watching a video of the conductor and marking my score with any cues or beat patterns that were not obvious to me. I wanted to be completely comfortable with the Musical Directors choreography before watching the video of the stage and trying to put the music to the action of the actors and dancers."
