When Stephanie was four years old, her babysitter placed paintings on the piano
and asked her to play what she saw. This empowered her to call herself a composer as
early as she could read and write, and she has been passionately and prolifically creating things with music and
words ever since.

Stephanie is now an NYC-based composer/lyricist working in music-drenched, highly collaborative theater.  She studied drama at Tisch/NYU, she participated in Adam Guettel’s group lab class through MTW, and she was the youngest member of the New Dramatists’ Composer/Librettist Studio in 2006.

Her music theater works include: TULLY (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER) (New York Musical Theater Festival 2007, for which she was awarded for Excellence in Music), THANKSGIVING! A! PAGEANT! (AdNauseum Lyceum), THE APOSTLE PROJECT (Theater Mitu/NYTW, directed by Ruben Polendo), and HAROUN AND THE SEA OF STORIES (Books On Stage at CSC, directed by Obie-Award winner Rachel Chavkin), THE AGEE/EVANS PROJECT (MSU’s New Works Initiative (Molly Rice and Rachel Chavkin)), and SOMETIMES IN PRAGUE with frequent collaborator Joshua William Gelb (Joe’s Pub, Ice Factory (3LD) 2011).

Songs of Stephanie's have been performed at Joe's Pub, HERE Arts Center, and Cafe Vivaldi, and she
contributed material for DREAMAKERS (with Brian D’Arcy James) at the Children’s Aid Society. As a music
director Stephanie has worked with Liz Swados and Taylor Mac, among others, and she recently spent
a year in Prague collaborating with the Czech gypsy/folk band Tripura.  Projects currently in development include a song cycle about the end of the world, a “Musical Fantasia On Piratical Themes”, and an opera for Heather Christian.
