Gary Morgenstein is the author of A Black and White Cookie, a funny new drama about racial harmony, which is scheduled to open at New York’s Theater for the New City post-COVID emergency. In the play, a conservative African American newsstand owner and a 1960s Jewish Communist form an unlikely yet powerful friendship to take on the system. His other works include A Tomato Can’t Grow in the Bronx about a Bronx Jewish family’s search for the American Dream set in 1968. Morgenstein also wrote the book for the upcoming madcap sci-fi musical Mad Mel Saves the World and the off-Broadway rock musical Anthem, inspired by the Ayn Rand novella. With film/tv composer Shadi Porkashef, Morgenstein is developing a musical based on the extraordinary life of David, from shepherd boy to King. The first 3 songs are completed for anyone interested.
