The Story of Jo-Beth

The man himself playing guitar at the reading Daniel Maté is probably one of the most talented young lyricist/composers in the contemporary music theatre realm. In the past, he's written a musical based on Kafka's The Metamorphoses (The Trouble with Doug) and the Book of Job (The Story of Jo-Beth). I got to take some photos of a reading of Jo-Beth. It's a great score and the Book of Job is my favorite biblical story. Daniel recently won the 2013 Kleban Prize for Most Promising Musical Theatre Lyricist!
