Personal Quote:

A book is a concept and a structure, and dialogue is the smallest part. You can have the best score in the world, but if the book is weak, it won't work. On the other hand, if the book is good, it can carry a mediocre score. See more »

Trivia:

"Curtains" on Broadway in New York City was nominated for a 2007 Antoinette Perry (Tony) Award for Best Musical. See more »
