With various collaborators, I have written about twenty musicals for children. These range in subject from Jewish holidays and folklore (Holy Moses, Joseph And Koza, Hello, Tomorrow!) to adaptations of classic children’s books (Sunshine, Tsugele) and original stories (Appalachian Spring, Hotel Jamaica.) Some of these were written to be performedfor children, some to be performed by children and some by a combination of the two. More information available on request.
