GIL VAROD (Book) is a bookwriter/lyricist whose musical ?Oedipus for Kids? extended and sold out at NYMF, was published by Samuel French with productions across North America, and was featured in a concert edition at Feinstein?s/54 Below last year. His twisted Christmas Cabaret "Merry Christmas, You Ridiculous Gentiles" was a sold out hit at the Duplex and spawned the viral hit "It's Gonna Be A Bruce Springsteen Christmas For All The Little Girls And Boys [Of New Jersey]". Other works include TIME ET AL (FringeNYC), THE COMMUTERS AND OTHER CAUTIONARY TALES OF TRANSIT (Dramatists Guild Footlight Series, Riant Theatre , 5 nominations/2 awards), A JURY LINE and THE ZEGEND OF LELDA (West Village Musical Theatre Festival, Winner Best Lyrics/Book/Musical), THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WALT DISNEY ABRIDGED (Walt Disney Imagineering), and RANSOMWHERE? and TIME TRAVEL MAKES COMPLETE SENSE at the Lincoln Center LPA. Gil has studied at the BMI Musical Theatre Writing Workshop and is possibly best known for his website ?Broadway Abridged?, featuring satirical scripts skewering plays and musicals, which are secretly passed around backstage by Broadway cast members like illegal love notes in math class.
