Don't Tell Mama's associate director of programming, Max Friedman, will direct both evenings.
Alexander Sage Oyen's musicals include Outlaws (book by James Presson, dir. Noah Himmelstein, presented at the 2014 ASCAP Workshop), A Night Like This (book, music, lyrics),Money$hot!

He and collaborator James Presson were awarded the 2013-2014 Dramatist Guild Fellowship and their musical, Outlaws, was a 2014 NAMT Finalist and was the recipient of the 2014 ASCAP Workshop. He was named one of Playbill's "Contemporary Musical Theatre Writers You Should Know," and he was selected for the 2014 Johnny Mercer Songwriter's Project.
