Dan Furman    Jazz Piano, Composer

News:  (updated 7/6/19)


Plans continue for a new series:  Tavern Musicals, to be hosted by Franklin 820 in the fall.  

Our first show will be a return engagement of "Impossible But True" during the month of October, followed by "Ybor City" in early 2020.  

(We are looking for sponsors to fund this series; please contact Dan if you, your company, or a company you know may be interested in helping to fund this project.  Also, see the Impossible But True page on this website.)


Sign in the Six O'Clock Sky finished its run at Theater for the New City on March 31st.  It was a great experience working with the talented director Shela Xoregos, writer Arnold Schulman and the whole crew responsible for the show.  The songs are up on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/dan-furman/sets/sign-in-the-six-oclock-sky-1


"Impossible But True" Podcast Recording nearing completion!

     Stay tuned!--soon you will be able to listen to the whole show in an online podcast, with interviews by the writer (me!) and actors who have participated (some for 10 years or more) in its development.
