Theatre Workshop Writers Gather at ‘Smoker’

Posted in News on March 16, 2005
The Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop held one of its in-house "Smokers" recently, where members of each of the three Workshop classes presented new songs from their works-in-progress. Produced by Workshop committee members Frank Evans, Director of Special Projects, and Patrick Cook, Artistic Coordinator, the event is an informal social gathering modeled after entertainments from BMI composer and former Workshop moderator Maury Yeston's undergraduate days at Cambridge.

Pictured after the "Smoker" are (seated) Workshop writers Jihwan Kim, Barbara Anselmi, Jill Abramovitz, Alison Loeb, Joy Son, (standing) Adam Overett, Sean Hartley, Phoebe Kreutz, Carla Rose Arnone, Bruce Mc Rae, Carey Lovelace, Brad Houghton and Aron Accurso, Smoker producers Frank Evans and Pat Cook, Workshop writers Beth Falcone, Jeff Blumenkrantz, Steve Routman and Jack Lechner, and BMI's Jean Banks.
