"I COULD SAY MORE"
Other Side Productions

THE NEW YORK TIMES:
"It’s a constellation that doubles as a lesson in evolving gay culture."

Following the celebrated productions of "Accidentally, Like a Martyr" and the award-winning NYMF "Shine," OSP premiered "I Could Say More," a new play by Chuck Blasius. This time I was  challenged with designing sound for a beachhouse and a myriad of music that this company always incorporates. Visit othersideproductions.org

I Could Say More

"Chaplin" gets London premiere!

A new musical is rare for this unique and prestigious school, and it was thrilling to see the lavish production in the heart of London. This was the first full production of Ernest Kinoy's challenging script about the Young Charlie, with full orchestrations for a 21-piece band. The sold out houses cheered this reborn show. Stayed tuned!

Other Side Productions presents "Accidentally, Like a Martyr"

No original music in this one, but some very original use of a helluva lot of great songs.  Who knew a jukebox was democracy in action?

THE NEW YORK TIMES:
"Bars can be comforting refuges. They can also be lonely as hell. Grant James Varjas gives us both in his effective new ensemble play about the denizens of an East Village gay bar. The cast is winning!"

THE VILLAGE VOICE:
"It’s quite refreshing to see a gay-themed play that features not only a mostly middle-aged cast, but nary a flash of skin or a well-muscled backside to create a reason for existence."

SHOW BUSINESS WEEKLY:
"An excellent job of recreating the feel of a Lower East Side dive. Succeeds in reproducing an intensely relatable environment for anyone who has spent any time in a gay bar..."
