I was born in the Bronx, an only child of deaf parents. Escaped to Manhattan, to attend the High School of Performing Arts and pursued acting. Began Playwriting as early as 5 with puppet shows which culminated into a tantrum shopping spree on Nassau Street to buy a tape recorder. My father’s deafness could not compute the cost. I attended the Leonard Davis Program at City College but decided to use my background and upbringing, changing my major to Speech Pathology. Hated it and jumped into the film business. I still work in the film business but my passion is playwriting. I joined Chuck Maryann’s playwriting workshop in 2009. It’s taken my whole life to write for the theater and perhaps an entire year of being shut in doors. I’v re-written 3 plays that are now on a level for readings. I live in Brooklyn, near Coney Island and I hope one day to return to civilization.
This is a fable. ”Silence of Beethoven" places Ludwig in present day Massachusetts. About to debut Eroica, the symphony that first develops the Beethoven sound, Ludwig prepares for Tanglewood. Given this opportunity, on a space usually meant for rehearsals, Beethoven rehearses, conducts, composes and makes love, all at the same time.
