Contemporary Musical Theatre Songwriters You Should Know: LIVE - January 27


 Who's Who 

  • Deborah Abramson

    Deborah is the Children's Music Director for Matilda the Musical on Broadway. Everything else about her present and future is up in the air. Everything about her past is searchable on the internet. She almost never writes songs anymore, and would not have written this one except for Michael Gioia's kindness in choosing and pursuing her, and for William Finn's baffling faith in her.

  • Scott Alan

    Scott wrote the book, music and lyrics for the musical Detour in Los Angeles. Many of Broadway's elite have sung his music which can be found on his debut CD "Dreaming Wide Awake." He released the album "Keys" in 2008, "What I Wanna Be When I Grow Up" in 2010 and "LIVE" in 2012. He is currently recording the album "I'm Coming Home to You" and is in development on the musical Home.

  • Sam Carner and Derek Gregor

    Carner and Gregor's musical Unlock'd was produced Off-Broadway and won a Richard Rodgers Award and "Best in the Fest" at NYMF. Their musical Island Song has played at the Bloomington Playwrights Project. Sam Carner has taught at Yale and NYU, and Derek Gregor founded the rock band M-LAB.
