The New York Times described it as "...soaring on the wings of theatrical fun." Berg is currently writing the music for the Broadway bound musical Grumpy Old Men, based on the hit film. Two of Berg's new musicals have been selected for the prestigious New York Musical Theater Festival: The Man Who Would Be King, a musical realization of Rudyard Kipling's novella, and Tim and Scrooge, the sequel to A Christmas Carol.
