SIPPLE (2018 Eugene O’Neill New Musical Theater Festival Semi-Finalist), PAINLESS: The Opioid Musical, an educational musical featuring orchestrations by Tony nominee and Olivier Award winner August Eriksmoen, and Midnight Channel: The Musical, an internet musical based off of the hit video game Persona 4, with over one million accumulated listens on SoundCloud.
