BWW TV Exclusive: CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER- Janet Krupin Sings Waggoner & Price's 'Ta-Da!'

This week's spotlight is on Joel Waggoner and Eric Price, whose new original musical PRESTO CHANGE-O is commissioned by Barrington Stage and directed by Marc Bruni (Beautiful). It tells the story of a family of stage magicians who find themselves living under the same roof for the first time in years. In this song, Tina, who is the family's maid and maintains their ever-growing collection of artifacts from the history of magic, reveals her larger ambitions. Here is the talented Janet Krupin (If/Then) performing the song at our concert at 54 Below.

JOEL WAGGONER holds an MFA from NYU's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program and currently works as a composer, performer, vocal coach, musical director and violinist. He was most recently seen in Southern Comfort (Barrington Stage, CAP21, NAMT). His bluegrass-folk/rock musical Carolina Breeze (book and lyrics by Lori Mannette) recently received the New York Writer's Summit Award for Outstanding New Musical. He was a 2012 Dramatist Guild Fellow and a 2009 ASCAP Max Dreyfus Award Winner.

ERIC PRICE is a Dramatists Guild Fellow, a member of the Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab, and received an MFA in Musical Theatre Writing from NYU. With composer Will Reynolds, he is writing Radioactive, which was developed in part at the Rhinebeck Writers Retreat and the Johnny Mercer Colony. His musical Hello Out There has been developed and/or produced at Goodspeed Musicals, the Village Theatre, and Adirondack Theatre Festival and his musical version of Emma is licensed by Playscripts. Eric is the assistant to 21-time Tony Award-winner Hal Prince and has worked with him on several new musicals.
