About the composer
George Luton hails from the Greater Boston area, where he has developed scores and launched productions for over a dozen original musicals and plays throughout the Massachusetts regional theatre circuit, working with companies such as Stage 284 (Earhart, Stiltskin, Nottingham), Boston Children’s Theatre (Apple and the Bear, Apple Plus), Island Theatre Workshop (Boots, Treasure Island), and In Vivo Productions The Conditions of Readiness, Face Work). His compositions have been acclaimed as "glorious, harmonic, rousing, singable, and memorable. The only question to be answered is which song you will be singing when you leave the theater." (BWW News Desk) George obtained a B.A. cum laude in Music and Drama from Vassar College, where he was employed by the school’s theatre department as a music specialist and was twice awarded the Jean-Slater Edson Prize in Composition. He currently lives in New York City, where he has been conducting and accompanying new musical projects at Columbia University’s School of the Arts (The Trojan Women), The Tank (Of Sleepless Nights), and Prospect Theater Company (Move Meant: Musical Theater Lab).
