Dan Furman    Jazz Piano, Composer

What's Happening:


"Ybor City" will be performed as a studio production at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor at the end of

January, 2017.  The book is by Anita Gonzalez and I wrote music and lyrics.  


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 first reading took place at the Lee Strasberg Institue in the summer of 2015.  


The most recent addition to the show is a new song entitled

"One More Roll," sung just before the workers decide to walk

out of the factory:










This musical has its own website: http://www.yborcitythemusical.com

More songs from the show are posted there!







































“Impossible But True” is available!  

   "Impossible But True" 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 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 it has not been offically published, the script and score are available.  Interested parties should contact me at danfurman@aol.com.
