MUSICAL THEATER

My Fake Funeral
This is an excerpt from a short musical I wrote that satirizes reality television while exploring the effects of social media on relationships and mental health. Music and lyrics by Ann Driscoll in consultation with William June.

Not a Child Anymore
This is a musical adaptation that I wrote of a scene from Arthur Miller’s play, View from a Bridge. It is a duet between Catherine the adopted daughter of Bea and Eddie, two working-class Italian-American Brooklynites in the 50’s. Eddie has a latent sexual obsession with the 17-year old Catherine, and Bea is trying to persuade Catherine to mature and move out of their house. Music and lyrics by Ann Driscoll in consultation with William June.

NOVELTY/OTHER

Insect Politics
A brief tribute to Brundlefly, the anti-hero of David Cronenberg’s tragic horror masterpiece, The Fly.

Frodo’s Lullaby
This is a Christmas present to friends, paying tribute to their beloved family Labrador, Frodo.

JTM Jingle
I sang but did not write this jingle, which extols the virtues of frozen hamburgers.
