BUM PHILLIPS OPERA WORKSHOP #2

The Amazing Earl Campbell

The first workshop of the upcoming opera about Bum Phillips and the Houston Oilers was so successful that we extended the performance one more weekend at La Mama in New York City.  LIU Post University students and Musical Director Kerry Prep were absolutely amazing in helping to bring this wild new commission to life.  So happy to be collaboration with my good friend Kirk Lynn who’s writing the book (we did the musical I’ve Never Been So Happy together) and my new friend Luke Leonard of Monk Parrots theater company who commissioned the piece and will be directing.  This is really going to be a fun new take on Opera/Musical Theater.  The official premier date is April 2014 in NYC but there are plans for several workshops along the way.  I caint wait!!!
