Tinseltown Christmas, (numerous productions in Southern California) Bagels! (Finalist, 2015 Neil Simon New Play Contest, LA STAGES festival) and the short musical film "The Coffee Quintet", all with music by Carl Johnson. I also wrote lyrics for Cardinal Sins, which played in Spring 2017, at Centerstage Theatre in Federal Way, WA., The Max Factor Factor (Adrian Bewley-Book, Joe Blodgett-Music) produced at the NoHo Arts Center 8/2014, Earthbound, an electronica musical, (book - Adam Hahn, music - Jonathan Price), produced by SkyPilot Theatre, summer 2012, and The Island, (book and music - Jonathan Price), produced by SkyPilot Theatre, summer 2013. Currently I'm continuing to refine Bagels!, and have begun work on two new musicals. If you are interested in joining my mailing list, and finding out about upcoming productions, please click here.
