Pea and Carrot
Pea and Carrot

A fresh, new musical for young audiences that follows two young vegetables in their first trip outside their grocery store city.

Happily Never After
Happily Never After

A full-length musical comedy about fairy-tale princesses in their 40s and 50s.

Book by Michele Cassidy, music and lyrics by Rebecca G. Greenstein.

George

A Craving
A Craving

A silly and poignant 10-minute musical. When a pregnant woman gets a late night craving for a radish, her husband sets out to find one, but he finds a whimsical world of gangsters and lessons instead. Book, music, and lyrics by Rebecca G. Greenstein, written for the BMI 1st-year final project.

Hapless Romance

Hapless Romance

 

A 10-minute musical involving a date gone horribly awry with larping (live action role playing, e.g. Dungeons and Dragons), featured in the 2010 West Village Musical Theatre Festival, where it won best lyrics and honorable mention for best overall musical. Music and lyrics by Rebecca G. Greenstein, book by Celine Rosenthal.

Varsity Show

The Varsity Show

 

Columbia University's 115th Annual Varsity Show: The Gates of Wrath is the 2009 edition of a musical tradition that satirizes student life (and the same tradition in which Rodgers, Hart, Hammerstein, and others took part). Rebecca G. Greenstein co-wrote the music, lyrics, and orchestrations for, musically directed, and conducted this full-scale musical.
