Eric Rockwell & Joanne Bogart

Eric Rockwell (Composer, Musical of Musicals. The Musical!) and Joanne Bogart (Lyricist, Musical of Musicals. The Musical!) began their collaboration in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop. For The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) they were honored with a 2004 Drama Desk nomination for Best Musical, as well as individual nominations for Best Music and Best Lyrics. The show also received a 2004 Lucille Lortel nomination for Best Musical and a 2005 Drama League nomination for Best Musical.

Their parody of Mickey and Judy musicals, Golly Gee Whiz was originally produced by the TADA! Theatre, then later featured at the Lincoln Center "Reel to Real" series. Their other collaborations include productions of The Trials of Alice in Wonderland and David and Goliath

As a lyricist, Ms. Bogart contributed several lyrics to The Book of Pooh, and Bear in the Big Blue House, both for the Disney Channel. 

Mr. Rockwell composed the score for The History Mystery, and wrote the libretto to Everything About School, both produced by the TADA! Theatre Company. 

They are currently working on their next project together, a traditional full-length Broadway book musical, which will leave them open to parody by some new upstart in years to come!
