Name: Gary Morgenstein
What is your current project?
Saving Stan, about friendship, greed, love and death,
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
We’re part of the wonderful new Broadway Bound Festival and we’re fortunate to play at the 14th Street Y, which is a terrific space.
What’s next for you?
Well before Saving Stan, my musical Mad Mel Saves the World premieres at the Midtown International Theater Festival (July 18-23). After Saving Stan, my new sci-fi novel A Mound Over Hell will be published by BHC Press in March 2018. In between I’ll try to sleep.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Ernest Shackleton Loves Me
Any advice for your peers?
Keep writing, no matter how much it hurts because in the end, it won’t.
