In The Works

Honeck-Moss Productions is proud to present “In The Works.” This exciting new series was conceived as an opportunity for composers to try out new work in front of an audience and see how it plays in a supportive environment. It is also an opportunity to create community among the composers and their performers.

In The Works will be presented monthly and feature three composers or composer teams, each presenting about 20 minutes of new material. This month features the works of composers: Landon Braverman, Meghan Rose, and Jessy Tomsko. Hosted by: Sarah Ziegler

Landon Braverman is a NYC-based composer, originally from Vancouver, Canada. With collaborator Derek P. Hassler (book & lyrics), he has written the scores for Picture Perfect (Prospect Theatre Company’s STAGE FRIGHT), Queen of the West (winner of Best Score and Best Musical – Manhattan Theatre Mission) and CHOICES (award winner at WVMTF, Top 10 Finalist Ken Davenport Short Play Competition, produced by NAAP). Their latest project, The White Rose, has been developed at Millikin University, the New York Theatre Barn, Musical Theater Factory, and in Toronto with Broadway Dreams. His music has been featured at Lincoln Centre, 54 Below, NYMF, and in concerts across North America. Landon is the Co-Founding Artistic Director of the Canadian Musical Theatre Writers Collective (CMTWC), a national organization devoted to supporting and promoting the work of Canadian musical theatre writers at home and abroad. For CMTWC he has produced Blame Canada!, an international concert series celebrating the best in new Canadian musical theatre. He also runs the CMTWC Writers Workshop in Toronto, and recently produced “An Evening with Stephen Schwartz” at the Panasonic Theatre. He is a proud alum of Mount Allison University, and the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at NYU-Tisch. He is a member of both ASCAP and the Dramatists Guild.

Meghan Rose is a songwriter, performer, and producer based in Brooklyn, recently from Madison, Wisconsin. She has written music for two NYC Fringe Festival productions (Love, Death, Brains: A Zombie Musical, and Held: A Musical Fantasy) and won awards for songwriting, bass performance, and vocal performance when she was part of the Madison scene. She currently plays piano, bass, and guitar for hire, and writes and performs rock with her band The Loud Soft Loud.

Jessy Tomsko is a singer/songwriter hailing from Philadelphia, currently based in NYC. Known for her catchy yet genuine and confessional style, Jessy is a versatile vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and composer. Though writing and performing primarily in the ever-expanding “folk” genre, she first began experimenting with songwriting whilst attending a conservatory, earning a music degree in classical voice performance. Drawn more and more to the singer songwriter coffeehouse style, her roots in classical music and musical theater provided her with a solid musical foundation and inspired her along the way to finding her own unique voice.

Jessy has independently released several EPs and albums over the years, and is currently in the studio working on her new record “Wild and Good” with producer Michael McCoy (Faith Hill, Maroon Five, Gavin DeGraw). She has shared the stage with an impressive list of notable artists (including several Grammy winners and nominees), such as Joan Osborne, Edwin McCain, Loudon Wainwright, Kim Richey, Peter Bradley Adams, Ari Hest, and Chris Trapper, and she has performed at many of the prominent venues and festivals in the Northeast and down the East coast. Recent performances include Musikfest (Bethlehem, PA), Black Potatoe Music Festival (Clinton, NJ), Highline Ballroom (NYC), Club Passim (Cambridge), Mexicali Live (Teaneck, NJ), Rams Head On Stage (Annapolis), Sellersville Theatre (PA), Pittsburgh Winery, World Cafe Live (Philly), and the Musikfest Cafe.

Jessy’s music has aired on MTV-UK, The Sundance Network, and most recently RoadTrip Nation, as well as garnering play on 100+ terrestrial and online radio stations. Spring 2017 saw her perform as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, and she is now in the process of penning her first musical – a folk music presentation of the story of Anne Boleyn – “Boleyn: A Folk Musical.” Plans to begin workshopping this work are now underway.

Sarah Ziegler (lyricist and librettist) is an advanced member of the BMI Workshop. Sarah is currently working with composer David Christensen and co-lyricist/librettist Kellen Blair on an audience-interactive “choose-your-own-adventure-style” dating musical called Just Between the All of Us. Sarah, Dave and Kellen are honored to have received a commission from Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera to complete this project. This summer of 2017, Theater in Asylum and Piper Theatre in Brooklyn will present a workshop production of Sarah’s other brand new musical, The Brontes, written with composer Lucas Tahiruzzamen Syed and co-book writer Katie Palmer. Sarah’s songs have been performed at cabaret spaces across the city including 54 Below (Lady Parts, Broadway Babylon, and MuseMatch), The Duplex (In the Works) and the New York Theatre Barn (Sarah vs. Sarah). Last fall, Sarah and composer Nicky Phillips had a short musical in Stage Fright, Prospect Theater Company’s Fall Musical Theater Lab, and this past spring, Sarah and composer Kristin Bair were commissioned to write a short musical in UC Irvine’s 4@15 production. Sarah has a Masters in Musical Theatre from The Boston Conservatory and also enjoys taking the stage as a performer herself. www.youtube.com/szigfer

A VERY NATALIE NEW YEAR with Natalie Douglas and Mark Hartman

Happy New Year! Well…almost…so that means it’s time for Natalie Douglas’ New Year’s Eve Bash!!

aka the Best New Year’s Eve deal in New York City – with the critically acclaimed Natalie Douglas performing two shows for New Years’ Eve.

Natalie’s New Year’s Eve performances in Greenwich Village have become a New York tradition, with this her 17th NYE Bash. Through her performances at Café Carlyle, Carnegie Hall, New York’s Town Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center and the legendary Birdland jazz club, 7 time MAC, Bistro and Nightlife Awards and the prestigious 2014 Margaret Whiting award winner, Natalie has become one of the most sought after cabaret/jazz/blues artists in the country.

This year at 7:30PM, Natalie, with Musical Director Mark Hartman, a veteran of Broadway pits, will open the evening with their traditional NYE bash, “A VERY NATALIE NEW YEAR” – a collection of their favorite celebratory tunes, putting you in the perfect mood to head off to your late night plans.

Then at 10:45PM join Natalie and Mark as they perform some of their favorite songs, along with tunes debuted just for this exclusive crowd, your “special” requests, perhaps a little bit of Christmas and a smidgen of Nina Simone, Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell and more as they ring in the New Year with old and new friends.

What critics have said:

“When she belts, she’s got enough pipes to outfit a plumber’s convention. The truth is… she’s got everything.”
– The NY Daily News

“Douglas now sings with more power, support and-most importantly-unbridled joy than ever before…amazing.”
– Show Business Weekly

“Combining the soul of a gospel singer with the musicianship of a jazz singer and the warm, chatty intimacy of a great cabareteuse, she can sing sweetly and softly and she can belt with the kind of power that you makes you respect her authority. Natalie Douglas is an artist well worth staying up late for.”
– Wall Street Journal

“She is considered what Green Acres’ Eva Gabor would call a “shoosting star,” a friendly, unimposing presence with a monstrous talent.”
– Next Magazine
