The Gravedigger's Lullaby

Will is thrilled to provide original music for Jeff Talbott's THE GRAVEDIGGER'S LULLABY playing off-Broadway at The Beckett Theatre.  

Here's how the show is billed: Baylen is a gravedigger, a working-class man trying to keep food on the table in a world where other people make the rules.  There’s a baby who can’t sleep at home, and plenty of holes to be dug.  But a chance encounter with a rich young man may bring the hope of a different life.  What will Baylen do?  THE GRAVEDIGGER’S LULLABY is a bold and gripping new contemporary drama about a time that has passed.  And how little things have changed.

Annaleigh Ashford - A New Year

The single features Ashford backed by her live band The Whiskey 5, which includes Van Dyke (piano), Alec Berlin (guitar), Steve Gilewski (bass), Mason Ingram (drums), and Allison Seidner (cello).

In The Works

Will is thrilled to take part of the "In The Works" series at The Duplex on December 18th.  This exciting new series was conceived as an opportunity for composers to try out new work in front of an audience and see how it plays in a supportive environment. It is also an opportunity to create community among the composers and their performers.  "In The Works" is presented monthly and features four composers or composer teams, each presenting about 15 minutes of new material.
