Ken is highly skilled at bringing stories to life, with decades of experience conceiving, writing and staging original and adapted music theater for the American stage. Most recently, Ken created an immersive theater piece, adapting composer Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations at a one-month theater festival, Daniel’s Art Party in the Berkshires, for which Ken was the producing artistic director. Ken adapted, directed and choreographed Queenie Pie, Duke Ellington's only opera, for Chicago Opera Theater and Long Beach Opera, as well as the highly successful production of the Czech opera, The Good Soldier Schweik. He also adapted, directed and choreographed an evening of Offenbach one-acts for Bard Summerscape Festival in New York, and his one-act opera (libretto, direction and choreography) Last Resort opened the first New Works Festival at Disney Hall’s REDCAT in Los Angeles. He is the creator and director of the wildly popular holiday musicals co-sponsored by the 99c Only Stores chain… seven original musicals in eight years. Ken has been commissioned by Los Angeles’ premiere theater, Center Theater Group, where he workshopped three commissioned musicals.
