Personal Quote:

If you don't go over the top you can't see what's on the other side.

Trivia:

Wrote the music for 'Dance of the Vampires' which opened in October 2002 and closed 3 months later on January 25, 2003. Though the music got good reviews, the critics trashed the rest of the creative team and cast making this show the biggest failure in Broadway history at a cost of 12 million dollars. See more »
