Compose Yourself! features music by Larry Grossman with lyrics by Hal Hackady, Ellen Fitzhugh, Betty Comden & Adolph Green, Buz Kohan, Carol Hall, Fred Ebb, Amanda Green, Drey Shepperd and Michael Korie. The cast will boast Nikki Renee Daniels (Les Misérables), Darius de Haas (Rent), Jason Graae (A Grand Night for Singing), Liz Larsen (Hairspray), Lorna Luft (Guys and Dolls) and Howard McGillin (The Phantom of the Opera). Stuart Ross (Forever Plaid creator) will direct the production with music direction by David Snyder. Award-winning composer Grossman will be featured at the piano. For this brand new revue, Mr. Grossman reaches into the trunk for songs never heard on a New York stage, and includes numbers he created for Broadway, television, revues, cabaret acts and even a presidential inauguration. Culled from an ongoing career spanning four decades, this material runs the gamut from sweeping ballads to raucous showstoppers. While some of these numbers will be familiar to musical theatre fans, many have never been heard on a New York stage before.
