Michael Friedman

Up next: Broadway's brightest

Earlier this month, Michael Friedman appeared a bit overwhelmed. He was involved with three shows either opening or in the works in varying degrees, with more to come.

For “God’s Ear” at the Vineyard, he’s just contributing music. For the stage adaptation of the film “Saved!” at Playwrights Horizons, he has music and lyrics co-writing credits. For the Public Theater’s “Paris Commune” as well as the upcoming “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” and “This Beautiful City,” Friedman wrote the score and the lyrics and must have been forcibly restrained from designing the sets and posters.

Friedman is in high demand, working with frequent collaborators the Civilians (the force behind “Commune” and “City”). Soon, his adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel “Fortress of Solitude” will be ready, too.

Friedman insists that what looks like agrand entrance is just serendipity. “You plant a lot of seeds,” he says happily, “and then they all start growing at once.”
