    Tommy Greenwald is an American playwright and children's book author. 

    His debut middle-grade fiction book was Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading, a humorous book about a reluctant reader. He also wrote the lyrics for the musical John & Jen, which tells the story of a woman named Jen and two men in her life named John: her brother, who dies in the Vietnam War, and her son.

    As a day job, Greenwald is executive creative director of Spotco, which creates advertisements for Broadway shows.

    Join Tommy as he shares his story with Emerson College students as a best-selling children's book author.

  • Starting Here, Starting Now

    11/22/13
    5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Tufte Performance and Production Center
    Greene Theater, 6th Floor
    $8 Emerson Community, $12 General Admission

    Music by David Shire
    Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.
    Directed by Scott LaFeber

    The excitement of young love and the confusion of growing up (or is it the other way around?) are explored in this intimate revue from one of the most respected teams in the contemporary musical theatre, Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire. Using songs from their various early musicals (produced or otherwise), this bold, extroverted journey takes a winsome cast of three through the maze of modern relationships with its heart firmly on its sleeve. As with all of Maltby and Shire's work, each song is an impeccably crafted story: original, engaging, bursting with character, and showcasing the versatility and charisma of its performer. From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to ecstatic shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, Starting Here, Starting Now has an appealing freshness that has made it a perennial favorite throughout the world.
