The Right Circles

This original musical tells the story of a struggling actor who gets far too involved in a practical joke being perpetrated by two Broadway writers on New York City’s avant garde theatre community. It is a black comedy about art, love, deception, sex, tolerance, food, playing God and opposable thumbs. The piece gained the authors representation with the Farber Literary Agency in New York, NY. The authors are no longer represented by the Farber Literary Agency, and the stageplay remains unproduced.

Demo Recording

The demo recording was created as a promotional tool for The Right Circles. “The Game” and “Birth of a Bohemian” were recorded in early 1994, when only Act I Scenes 1-2 had been completed, in order to pursue representation. The Farber Literary Agency signed the authors on the strength of these songs and the accompanying script pages. Once the stageplay and score were completed in Fall 1994, the rest of the demo recording was created.
