"Quality Street"

based on the play by J.M.Barrie

A romantic musical comedy about mistaken identify, social impropriety, and the bad taste of cold revenge.

A challenging score, written in a classic but musical theatre style. The play features 6 women, 4 men, with a scalable ensemble.

Now in development.

Quality Street


This 1980 song found its way to the gifted actor/writer/singer Grant James Varjas. His and Preston Clarke's alternative rock interpretation is one I never imagined; haunting and nuanced, but far from the lush Hollywood arrangement I had expected.

"Sassafras Tea"

Once upon a time deep in the heart of Greenwich Village, off the square but hard to miss, there was a piano bar, famed and faded. Eldorado. A perpetual green room, visited nightly by Broadway stars and showbiz wannabes. They dally and drink, chatter and sing, side by side with mere patrons that gawk and applaud, taking musical turns as secrets play out and the songs play on.
