The story of the
Café du Caché


n May of 2003 my longtime friend Elliot Cole & I decided to put on a show. We had no idea what show we were going to put on but that didn't stop us from renting the theater. Nothing spurs creativity like a deadline! And so in just two months we wrote, cast, & rehearsed our original musical, The Café du Caché. I penned the script & lyrics while Elliot composed all the music.

wo days before we opened one of the actors lost his nerve and quit the production. I was the only person who knew all of the lines, songs, & choreography which is how I reluctantly joined the cast. But I'm glad I did. To date I've never had a more exciting or fulfilling creative experience.
