About the Band

The musicians responsible for arranging and performing tonight’s score are enrolled in a class devoted to performance on Electronic Instruments. All of the sounds you hear are synthesized ones, developed and arranged by this class under the guidance of Roger Bourland. The Musical Theater Workshop is proud to have their talent and creativity focus on a new piece of musical theater. While this is still an experiment, the marriage between electronic music and music theater is a major modern problem in performance that professionals have yet to solve. We are grateful to the Electronic Music Studio, the Department of Music, and the College of Fine Arts for giving us an opportunity to experiment.

We salute our Super Efficient Computer Soundmakers Joel Harnell, David Koz, James Christopher Reed, and Sergio Rodriguez with special thanks to Roger Bourland, Tom Withey (Audio Supervisor), and Jeff Richmond (Sound Technician and Technical Director).

About the Authors

Amy Wooley Rawlings
Amy Wooley Rawlings comes from Cleveland, Ohio, where she began her musical career as a folksinger. After recording an album for MCA and being nominated for best new country artist she moved to Los Angeles and came to and was in the ensemble for Puccini’s La Bohème. She place second in the Carol Burnett Awards with a scene of original music including the song “Suits” from this musical. A sophomore majoring in musical composition, she first worked on Lust and Greed as an assignment in Gary Gardner’s playwriting course, little knowing that this assignment could turn into a project that has taken over her life. Switching from writing Lust and Greed to her counterpoint homework has added new dimension to Ms. Rawlings’ life…schizophrenia.

John Hall
John Hall has produced and directed over fifty productions of opera and musical theater at UCLA. From the modern premiere of A. Scarlatti’s Gli Equivoci nel sembiante to Kurt Weill’s The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, his productions have shown his wide interest in different styles, periods, and types of musical theater.

His duties at UCLA allow him to direct many kinds of productions. Las month he directed the Los Angeles premiere of Handel’s opera Imeneo, three weeks later…Lust and Greed. As director of UCLA’s Musical Theater Workshop he has tried to balance producing new works with training in the classics of the genre. He has produced two revues highlighting material found in UCLA’s Archive of Popular American Music the “Salutes to Broadway and Hollywood” which were huge critical and popular successes. His basic belief is that new musical theater must be nurtured at the university as well as revivals of older standards. Which is partly how he came to co-author Lust and Greed…the other part being his love of 1960’s rock and roll.
