WRITER

SPRING 2016 – new tracks added!
Below are four songs from a treatment of the 1987 Wim Wenders Film “Wings Of Desire” that my collaborator Joseph Olson and I wrote in BMI in 2015.

 

I am a librettist and lyricist (and sometimes composer), having had my work performed on the Broadway stage, off-Broadway, in Festivals, and in cabarets and benefit concerts around the country.   I am currently a member of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop, where I was the recent recipient of the Jean Banks Musical Theatre Award for outstanding achievement in musical theater, awarded for my 15-minute musical “Everyday,” which you can listen to below.   Feel free to give a listen, below, to some of my work, and works in progress!


“WINGS OF DESIRE”

Book and Lyrics by Geoffrey Goldberg, Music by Joseph Olson

Below is a treatment on the 1987 Wim Wenders film “Wings of Desire” that Joseph and I wrote during our second year at BMI Workshop.  These are four songs from what would be Act 1 of the musical.  Performances by Victoria Huston-Elem, Tom Souhrada, and Geoffrey Goldberg


“EVERYDAY: a subway romance”

Book and Lyrics by Geoffrey Goldberg, Music by Joseph Olson

“Everyday” is an original 10-minute musical about two quirky hopeless romantics who ride the same subway car everyday and have never said hello…until today. When their dreams and reality collide and they realize they are perfectly not right for each other, their morning commute takes an unexpected (and hilarious) turn.

“Everyday” was presented at the West Village Musical Theater Festival in July, 2014 and received awards for BEST MUSICAL, BEST LYRICS, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE, BEST DIRECTION, and BEST ACTRESS.  Give it a listen, below!


“LOST AND FOUND”

Music and Lyrics by Geoffrey Goldberg

This song was written for and performed at a Kennedy Center Millenium Stage song-cycle show entitled “A Year on the Road.” Performed by Ellen Harvey, Geoffrey Goldberg, Q Smith, Tom Souhrada.


“HERE WE GO”

Music and Lyrics by Geoffrey Goldberg

This song was written for a “A Year On The Road” at the Kennedy Center.  It was performed at the 2010 Gypsy of the Year performance.  Performed here by Ellen Harvey, Tom Souhrada, Elizabeth Earley, and Geoffrey Goldberg.


“TEXT ME”

Music and Lyrics by Geoffrey Goldberg

Written as a standalone cabaret song, “Text Me” is a commentary on how our relationships with one another are affected by our relationships with, well, technology.

“SOMEONE ELSE’S SONG”

Music and Lyrics by Geoffrey Goldberg

This song was written as a standalone piece, about the struggle with trying to be original, trying to find the words to say what really matters to you, and not simply to say what has already been said, to sing someone else’s song.

ACTOR
