I’m in New York and so sad to miss this, but if you’re in Chicago at all, get to DePaul Saturday night for the premiere of “Void”. Thanks forever to 5th Wave Collective for making this happen.

Also this promo photo is BADASS and I'm completely obsessed with it, so you should all go to this performance on my behalf and support new music.

The guy next to me asked me if I always write songs in airports. I said no, sometimes I write pieces. He didn’t laugh.

Photos from Heidi Joosten's post

Grateful doesn’t begin to describe how I feel about Ashley Geron and Zach Madison for bringing me along to SAME Street last night and facilitating my Second City debut. These two are not only fantastic performers, they are two of the most genuine people to ever walk the earth. See everything they’re in, and hire them for everything. Thanks to all involved and all who came out 🙂

What do you do on the closest thing you’ll have to a day off in months? See new theatre of course 🙂 David Yazbek is unstoppable, and this show is a riot. Can’t wait to see the changes once it makes it to Broadway!!

Stiff Upper Lip - Stratford & Joosten

*NSFW*. Grief affects us all differently. Without a healthy outlet of expression, however, it can be an all-consuming toxic vortex. This song came out of a conversation with Laura about how toxic masculinity and the inability to show emotion hurts men as well as women. Check out Jared Flodman's heartbreaking interpretation of "Stiff Upper Lip", and message me for sheet music inquiries.

Recorded by Atlas Arts Media at Davenport's Piano Bar on August 9, 2018.

A Little Patch of Earth - Stratford & Joosten

In a preview from our upcoming musical, THE BONE HARP, the incomparable Brittani Moore shows us Jessa's true wishes as she desires a life outside of her current situation.

Jessa and her sister, Jenny, live on the outskirts of town with their graveyard-keeper father and the memory of a mother who left them. Together, they can conjure up the Boneyard, where the spirits of deceased townspeople keep them company. When Jessa sees a spirit who might just be her mother, she and her sister must question everything they think they know about their family.

Recorded by Atlas Arts Media at Davenport's Piano Bar on August 9, 2018.
