This week we are joined by two more of the artists from our New Writers at 54! Series, Andrew R. Butler and Mark Sonnenblick.
Andrew R. Butler is a Jonathon Larson Grant winning-composer, writer and performer. His composition credits include the Lucille Lortel Award winner for Outstanding Musical Rags Parkland Sings The Songs Of The Future, and four musicals co-written with playwright Andrew Farmer. As an actor, he has performed in productions from theaters such as Ars Nova, SoHo Rep, and Theater For A New Audience. He also writes and performs with the longstanding musical comedy group Political Subversities.
Mark Sonnenblick is a composer, lyricist and scriptwriter whose credits include Midnight at The Never Get, which was nominated for a bunch of off-Broadway awards last season, as well as Independents, Ship Show, Stompcat in Lawndale, and Dragons Love Tacos with TheatreworksUSA. He has also been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award and received a Jonathan Larson Grant and the Harold Adamson Lyric Award.
