Dan Furman    Jazz Piano, Composer

What's Happening:


My new musical, "The Proust Virus," is ready for its first public reading.  "The Proust Virus" is about video game characters who come to life when the works of Proust get uploaded into the game.


Last summer, Anita Gonzalez and I staged the first reading of another  new musical, "Ybor City."   Set in Tampa,

FL in 1918, the show is a story about cigar workers who decide to form a union and go on strike.   The reading  took place at the Lee Strasberg Institue on August 21st.  We had a full house!  "Ybor City" is scheduled to be produced at the University of Michigan in January, 2017.


This song was recently added to the show:

"Siempre Seras Mi Flor"--(You will always be my flower)









We now have a website: http://www.yborcitythemusical.com

More info and songs from the show is posted there!







































“Rip!” Renamed “Impossible But True.”

I believe the new title gives a better sense of the show.  I am looking for theaters that may be interested in putting on the show.  The entire CD of the 2013 Tarrytown Concert can be downloaded from Bandcamp for an optional donation:  see the “Impossible But True!” page for the link.  This show is ready to be produced.  It requires 12 or 13 actors, including one young girl, and a piano, violin and cello.  Although the show has not been offically published, the script and score are available.  Interested theaters should contact me at danfurman@aol.com.
