Janine McGuire BIO

Janine McGuire is one half of McGuire & Simon, a NYC-based musical theatre writing team. Along with her collaborator Arri Lawton Simon, she is currently adapting the 2006 Eytan Fox film The Bubble for the stage as BORDERS, the story of two men, one Israeli and one Palestinian, who fall in love.

McGuire & Simon's immersive musical EXPRESS premiered at the New York Transit Museum in Fall 2015, was re-mounted in Spring 2017, and was recently expanded through a workshop production at New York Film Academy. They wrote the songs for the new children’s musical KIBBY THE SPACE DOG, commissioned by the Wichita Children’s Theatre and Dance Center, which will premiere in April 2018. Collectively they have written and produced concerts, stage musicals, plays, film scores, orchestral pieces, choral works, and custom songs in addition to teaching musical theatre and performing arts outreach in the community.

Janine received a B.A. in Music from Barnard College, Columbia University. She is member of the BMI Advanced Workshop and a recipient of the 2017-18 Dramatists Guild Fellowship for musical theatre.
