NUMBERS NERDS meets Sheldon Harnick – Fiddler lyricist
Sheldon Harnick, the original lyricist for FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and SHE LOVES ME, will be part of the panel. Thoughts of FIDDLER ran through my head immediately. When I told the liberttist for NERDS, Laura Stratford, she immediately sent an email to OUR lyricist, Alex Higgin-Houser, that asked, can Melissa (the lead character in our show) quickly learn Yiddish? What an honor to be able to meet him and get his feedback.
Oh, one last thing I would like to announce. We have added Julie Bossidy as an Associate Producer for CPA Theatricals. Her job will be to spread the word about NUMBERS NERDS on the east coast and to connect with likely theatres in that area who might be interested in producing our show. Julie has always been interested in the theatre and was one of the few people who saw the importance of HAMILTON early enough to get seats on Broadway – with the original cast!
We have also added two production assistants who will focus on social media and growing our mailing lists – Michael Idaski and Chris Thoren. WELCOME…..
Now, the fun part begins….. Any advice?
