of the sheet music from The Tutor
The Tutor was created in part during a writers’ residency at the Eugene O’Neill Music Theatre Conference in Waterford, CT. A half-hour exceprt was presented at the Public Theatre’s New Work Now! festival in the spring of 2002. It’s a three time recipient of the Richard Rodgers Award, administered by the American Academy of Arts and Letters: a Development Award in 2002, a Studio Production Award in 2003. The Tutor has been produced by The Prospect Theater Company at 59E59 St. Theaters in NYC and the Spirit of Broadway Theater in Norwich, CT.
The Tutor is an original musical comedy about love, family, art, and what it really takes to get into Princeton. Edmund, a tormented young novelist, makes his living tutoring rich kids with bad grades and anxious parents. His newest client, Sweetie Finley, is a tougher nut to crack than most, but when this pierced-nose teen with a snarky attitude becomes Edmund’s creative muse, his life – and his novel – take a very unexpected turn.
