Dan Furman    Jazz Piano, Composer

What's Happening:

“Impossible But True (in a tavern!)”   

   We had a great time putting on "Impossible But True" at Franklin 820 in Brooklyn in April and May.  IBTT is a musical that affirms that it is WE who make history and who decide what is possible.  It is also a retelling of the "Rip Van Winkle" story, so it is especially relevant for theaters in the Hudson Valley.

The newest version has been rewritten to take place immersively in a tavern with 9 actors.  It includes several new scenes and 2 new songs.  We had a fantastic cast directed by Cailîn Heffernan (SDC).  I am looking for other opportunities to do the show (especially in taverns or tavern-like theaters or restaurants).i
