Adrian Bewley is writing the book for three musicals currently in development. Beautiful, an adaptation of Hedda Gabler set in the beauty pageant world of modern Birmingham, Alabama (music by Cindy O’Connor, lyrics by Larry Todd Johnson), was included in the Festival of New Musicals at Cal State Fullerton May 2011. The Angel of Painted Post (music by Matthew Levine, lyrics by Richard Castle) was included in the LA STAGES festival last July and was chosen to open the Academy of New Musical Theatre’s Concert Series last December. The Max Factor Factor (music by Joe Blodgett, lyrics by Chana Wise) is currently being developed for Celebration Theater in Hollywood. Outside the world of musical theater, he has written two full length plays: Ball of Roses (produced in 1999 in NYC), and The Erikson Report (produced in LA in 2008). He released an album of his original folk-rock tunes in 2008 called Guilty White Boy. www.adrianbewley.com
