I write about outsiders.
Whether it’s the Japanese-American internees in my Broadway musical ALLEGIANCE;
or the misfit theater kids of my novel HOW I PAID FOR COLLEGE (and its subsequent stage adaptation);
or the real-life gay penguins who caused a culture war in my play BIRDS OF A FEATHER;
or the misunderstood teenage Judy Garland in my musical CHASING RAINBOWS;
I’m continually fascinated by stories that examine “otherness."
