About the composer
MICHAEL WARTOFSKY’s music and lyrics were featured in THE MAN IN MY HEAD at New York Musical Theatre Festival 2006 starring Darius de Haas. Broadway.com called the score a “percolating delight.” Summer 2012 two of his musicals premiered simultaneously in Boston: CUPCAKE with lyrics by David Reiffel and book by Bradley Seeman at Club Café, and CAR TALK:THE MUSICAL!!! at Central Square Theatre, featuring Michael’s original music and Wes Savick’s book and lyrics. Michael’s music and lyrics for RUNNING BACK, a new musical co-written with Marcus Gardley, were presented at a New Dramatists Benefit 2011, the 2010 National Alliance Musical Theater Conference, and in an Equity reading of Act I in 2010, and at Berklee College. For North Shore Music Theater, Michael composed music for THE NAVIGATOR (Equity reading directed by Daniella Topol 2006) and FRIENDSHIP OF THE SEA with Kathleen Cahill (Equity touring production for young audiences 2003-‘04). “Possibilities” by Wartofsky and Cahill is listed as one of the top 25 songs in the Directory of Contemporary Musical Theatre Writers, 2012. The singing group The Broadway Boys has performed "Possibilities" and many others have presented Michael’s songs at Birdland, the Triad, and Joe’s Pub and at Berklee College.
