Julia Meinwald

New York, NY
I'm a composer who likes writing for musical theatre and opera (and the occasional film and computer game score) and eating kimchi. My musicals include PREGNANCY PACT, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, and THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD. My opera REB+VoDKa+ME just won a Discovery Grant from Opera America! My collaborator Gordon Leary and I like tonwrite aggressively empathetic shows that help us understand completely foreign points of view, like Anita Bryant's anti-gay-rights crusade, online fan communities that formed around high school shooters, and groups of teenage girls who decide to get pregnant together. My work has been produced at the Weston Playhouse and developed through awesome groups like Ars Nova, Page 73, the Civilians, Fresh Ground Pepper, 92Y the Dramatists Guild, and exciting acronyms like MTF, NAMT, NYMF, and YIMT. Talk to me about any of that, or what you're working on, reading, listening to, etc!
