Jeff Blumenkrantz is a man who wears many hats. As an actor, he was in the original companies of Into the Woods, A Class, Act, Murder for Two, and the revivals of Damn Yankees and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Behind the scenes he was one of the most celebrated songwriters of the early 2000s, having written songs for the musical Urban Cowboy (Tony nom), as well as for Audra McDonald, Victoria Clark, and Megan Mullally. And, in the kitchen, he is a fabulous chef!

Jeff pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he reduced Stephen Sondheim to fits of laughter, what lessons he leaned from the BMI Workshop, and why Walter Bobbie doesn’t like criers.

Also, Jeff shines the spotlight on Alysha Umphress, Audra McDonald, and Steve Martin!
