“Wit, bite, and insouciant lyrics.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Abrams is a top-tier satirical songwriter — at her best, she approaches the genius of Tom Lehrer and is easily the equal of the formidable John Forster. And she’s a prodigious pianist… ” Barry Willis, Marin Independent Journal
“Abrams’ songs are production’s standouts.” Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle

“Hellishly clever!” Uxbridge Gazette, United Kingdom

OUR TWO PRIDE & PREJUDICE MUSICALS!

March 23rd, 2013

Josie Brown and I have just finished final edits on our new 7-person cast version of PRIDE & PREJUDICE. Since the London World Premiere of our 15-person cast version, we have some exciting developments, and look forward to the US premiere of that one. But the smaller version will be a little less tradional and a little more whimsical, with much role changing, comedy, and gender shifting. Will keep you posted!

200th Anniversary of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice! 1/28/13

January 28th, 2013

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen’s timelessly precious gift-that-keeps-on-giving will continue to delight and inspire the world for as long as there is a world. The story will soar on, beyond every form of media we humans can devise–which is why author Josie Brown and I were moved to make a musical of it, a humbling experience which demanded of us the best, and then some. While others have tweaked, twisted and revised the tale to make it theirs, we aspired to keep it authentic, as if Jane herself decided to add songs. And the sweet audiences at our Ruislip Operatic Society, UK world premiere in November seemed to approve. Happy Anniversary, Jane, and thank you from the bottom of our millions and millions of hearts.
