Brad Alexander - Today on the podcast I welcome Brad Alexander, composer, musical genius, and as you'll hear, an all round gracious guy who is talented in his own right and is quick to recognize and compliment the brilliance of his colleagues. I'm excited to introduce you to Brad and give you a peak into how he figured out how to make it as an award winning composer in the big apple. Brad is the composer of DOG MAN: THE MUSICAL - now running at the Lucille Lortel Theater in New York City and it will be on national tour this fall. He is the recipient of the 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical, six Drama Desk nominations, the Richard Rodgers Award, and The BMI Foundation Jerry Bock Award. Brad has written music for PBS's Emmy Award-winning PEG + CAT, VH1's "Celebreality" campaign, SiriusXM's STAGE DOOR SUPPER CLUB, and the web series SUBMISSIONS ONLY. In addition to Dog Man: The Musical, Brad has scored numerous shows for Theaterworks USA including the music and orchestrations for CLICK CLACK MOO, the music for JUST SO STORIES and MARTHA SPEAKS and songs for DUCK FOR PRESIDENT, FLY GUY & OTHER STORIES, and WE THE PEOPLE: AMERICA ROCKS! Brad is currently lead composer for the upcoming CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG from Scholastic, Amazon and PBS KIDS. He is also working on the musical, BREAD AND ROSES, presented by Amas Musical Theatre and NYMF’s Developmental Reading Series, and LIKE A BILLION LIKES, developed at Johnny Mercer Writers Colony at Goodspeed Musicals. And if that wasn't enough, he is the co-founder of Flying Ivories, a dueling piano entertainment company with locations in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia. Brad is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, National Alliance for Musical Theatre, Dramatists Guild of America and member Emeritus of The BMI Musical Theatre Workshop.
