Geoffrey is currently working on writing two original musicals with composer-collaborator Steve Sweeting. One, “PIECE OF MIND,” offers an intriguing glimpse inside the failing mind of Robert, an 80-year-old former USO dancer, as he struggles with memories from a past that he is partly trying to remember, and partly trying to forget. Another, “ABCDead” is a darkly-humorous and sometimes raucous musical comedy about a fantastical village where children are dying…in alphabetical order their first names…and three young kids, Xander, Yolanda, and Zachary set out on a mission to discover what is going on before it’s too late!
Other projects include a musical version of the 1987 Wim Weders film “Wings Of Desire;” a farcical play “The Honeymoon Suite;” a children’s musical short based on “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds; and an original musical dance show, “Dancing In Love,” devised with World Audience Productions.
