The Marcy and Zina Show puts two shining stars of today’s musical theater scene front and center, with bookwriter/lyricist Marcy Heisler and composer Zina Goldrich singing the songs they write with wit and intelligence and impressive musical comedy.
Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich are the first women ever honored as recipients of the Fred Ebb Award for Musical Theatre Songwriting. They were also nominated for 2009 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Lyrics and Music for Dear Edwina and earned Lucille Lortel Award nominations for their Junie B.Jones. Goldrich and Heisler have provided original songs for The Disney Channel, Disney Interactive and Feature Animation projects, Disney Theatricals, PBS, and Nickelodeon. As performers, they have toured domestically and internationally, presenting their music at some of the finest venues, including Carnegie Hall, Canada’s “Juste Pour Rire” comedy festival and the Kennedy Center.
Goldrich and Heisler are slated to make their Broadway debut as authors of the book, lyrics and music for the Broadway musical stage adaptation of Ever After, directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes and choreographed by Tony Award winner Rob Ashford, set to premiere at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey in May and June of this year.
