I am a writer, producer and director of musicals. I also license plays which I produce and direct. All of the works that I either write or license are of a “Jewish sensibility. My musicals as writer of book, lyrics and music include A Stoop On Orchard Street, which was performed for over sixteen months Off Broadway, sat down for five months in South Florida and toured 30 North American cities. To date, A Stoop On Orchard Street has been performed over one thousand times. I also wrote the book,lyrics and music of   My Catskills Summer, The Book of Esther, and Cooking With Bubbie. I have licensed, produced and directed Old Jews Telling Jokes in numerous markets and venues as well as Golda’s Balcony, Broadway’s longest running one woman show. I recently acquired certain North American touring rights to the Off Broadway production of Wiesenthal, starring its writer Tom Dugan. Wiesenthal is the story of Simon Wiesenthal, Nazi Hunter who was responsible for bringing over 1100 Nazi criminals to justice. I am very interested in booking Wiesenthal in traditional and non-traditional venues throughout North America. Prior to writing and presenting theatrical works, I owned several advertising/marketing companies which has helped me immeasurably in working with co-promotors/presenters and venues in the marketing of my productions.
