The Festival of New American Musicals first appeared in Southern California in 2008, and since then, the folks over there have been spreading the word about musical theater all around the region, bringing under their umbrella a wonderful diversity of shows, concerts, classes & competitions, so that even the sourpussiest curmudgeon will find something to cheer his miserable heart when he talks about “LA theater, grumble grumble.”

Now, to celebrate the end of their third fantastic year, FNAM have given me the extraordinary honor of devoting their final concert to my work. And so, at a very fancy-shmancy garden party in Pacific Palisades, I will be leading a kick-ass band and some of my favorite singers in the whole world through a wild afternoon JRB hoedown, and I want YOU to come!

Here’s who’s on the agenda:
with special guests The Theater Geeks Of America!
And me, of course, reducing an otherwise perfectly creditable piano to rubble while shrieking somewhere in the vicinity of the correct pitches.

Won’t you come out at 4 PM on Saturday, August 21 and help support this fantastic festival? And hear some insanely talented singers nail my songs? What better way is there to spend a Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles?

To make your reservation, you can just go to, so go DO THAT! There are only 150 tickets!

See you on August 21!
