Redhand Guitar, the theatre piece, was a finalist for the prestigious Richard Rodgers Award in 2009.
In September of 2009, Arena Stage in Washington, DC, (Molly Smith, artistic director) produced a two-week developmental workshop in which we explored the piece on its feet.
In the fall of 2010, songs from Redhand Guitar were included in the National Alliance for Musical Theatre (NAMT)’s Songwriter’s Showcase in New York.
Evan and Mike worked on the piece at an artist’s retreat at the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company, Weston, Vermont, April 2011.
The first act was read in August of 2014 at Williamstown Theatre Festival in conjunction with the workshop launch of the social narrative, Redhand Legacy.
