Chana Wise

My name is Chana Wise and I’m a bookwriter/lyricist. My musical Bagels! is inspired by a truly monumental event in history – the invention of the first, automated bagel machine in the early 1960’s. Bagels! was a finalist in the 2015 Neil Simon playwriting contest. It is a comedy, yes, but it also has some very not so funny moments as it’s essentially about betrayal, ambition, and family relationships.

I have also written book and lyrics for Mary Marie (NAMT Festival, 2014, Richard Rodgers Award finalist, 2014), Tinseltown Christmas, and The Coffee Quintet – a short musical film (www.thecoffeequintet.com), all with music by Carl Johnson. I also wrote lyrics for The Max Factor Factor, (music – Joe Blodgett, book – Adrian Bewley) produced by New Musicals, Inc. at the NoHo Arts Center in August, 2014, Earthbound, (book by Adam Hahn, music by Jonathan Price) and The Island, (book and music by Jonathan Price), both produced by SkyPilot Theatre and premiering at T. U. Studios in Hollywood, June 2012 and July 2013, respectively, and for Cardinal Sins, which opened at Centerstage Theatre in Washington, May, 2017.
