Bio:
In the summer of 2011, I was having a conversation with a director who was producing a musical I had written, and he was telling me about another play he was developing about high school students. I suggested he incorporate one scene where the students assemble a cheesy garage band called Sondheim Steamroller (yes Virginia, this is a play on Mannheim Steamroller) which would mostly perform hard rock covers of Stephen Sondheim's Broadway classics. These heavy metal anthems would also have some cleverness and parody built into them, so a well known song like "Finishing The Hat" would evolve into "Finishing The Lid" - which retains the obvious fashion reference of the original, but also takes on the more dubious drug connotation that high school students might relate to. After the director's play was produced, sans my beloved new rock band concept, I decided to resurrect the band called Sondheim Steamroller on MacJams.
