THE GYPSY KING
Last March saw the opening of Kirby and Randy Rogel's new musical The Gypsy
King at the Village Theatre in Issaquah, WA. The show had a very successful
ten-week run. Hopefully The Gypsy King will start moving east next year.
Kirby is busy looking for a producer for his new screenplay, A Player Born.
It was written over a three-week period while performing at the Peterborough
Players in New Hampshire. You can read about it on his blog.
You can also read about his other new projects, including Talking Heads, a
musical theatre piece he and wife Beverly are creating for themselves, and
a new screenplay for a movie featuring Bev's music called Open Mic.
This last summer Kirby was seen in the Williamstown Theatre Festival's production of STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE directed by David Cromer. Kirby continues his series of concert appearances all
over the country. The last one was a very well received week with the Sunshine
Pops in Boca Raton, FL where he and wife Beverly Ward starred with the legendary conductor Richard Heyman as they sang and danced to songs from the great American songbook. Composers Gershwin, Berlin, Kern and Hart were featured.
