Public Premiere of Golden Roads Musical of Golda Meir

Public Premier Showing of Golden Roads is All Set

Public Premiere of Golden Roads Musical of Golda Meir. The word is out. Ticket sales are brisk. Everyone thinks we have a hit on our hands. This musical is happy, uplifting and meant to inspire. Also, this musical has elements of the beautiful music of the 1930’s. Like early 1930’s hit, Stardust, by Hoagy Carmichael, melody is of primary importance. David composes from the standpoint of melody, unlike many of today’s composers. Melody should be held as sacred. Rhythm is also enjoyable. However, in composition, it should be at the service of melody.   Since age 11, that has  been David’s style of composition. All have their own Golden Roads that lead to fulfillment of personal wishes and dreams. The formula is in the musical.

  • We have a wonderful director, Carlo Thomas. “He went on to a career which included Opera (City Opera, Canadian Opera, Berlin Opera, The Spoleto Music Festival, where he was directed by Gian Carlo Menotti), Broadway (1776, Phantom of the Opera), Concert (soloist at Radio City Music Hall), Recording with the Fred Waring band – and anything that required music. With his life partner Timothy Gray (who with Hugh Martin wrote the score for the musical High Spirits – based on the Noel Coward play Blithe Spirit, and many more), Carlo was enmeshed in the theater scene. Listen to this extraordinary man tell the charming, funny and sometimes outrageous stories of a life and career dedicated to the making of beautiful music. 11-24-14 Audio Interview.”
  • Carlo introduced us to the use of musical motifs. We use them extensively in Golden Roads. The piano becomes a surrogate actor by using musical comments on stage. The technique was used extensively in The Phantom of the Opera. What a learning experience this was for us. We are honored to work with this man.
