The second half can only be better than the first… 11 songs in the first half? Hopefully it will go fast.

Alexander’s House

Original music and lyrics by Michael Shaieb, book by Michael Shaieb and Brent Lord for a one-act choral musical about a man who dies and leaves his summer home to his estranged son instead of his partner. It is a story about bringing people together from separate worlds and about the family of friends that we create.

Commissioned by Jeff Buhrman and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington DC for their 30th Anniversary Concert and their performance at the GALA Choruses Festival 2012 in Denver. The world premiere was June 4-5, 2011 at Lisner Auditorium on the George Washington University campus in Washington DC.
