Last summer, the powerful musical MOSES MAN made its New York debut at the prestigious NEW YORK MUSICAL THEATRE FESTIVAL (NYMF).
“LIKAH!, a real life Border Collie (actually her pup), is the inspiration of this very special story of unconditional love, pure joy, and dealing with the unexpected hurt of losing someone dear.” Said Deborah Haber, LIKAH!’s author and DEEP Arts Executive Artistic Director. “Life lessons and experiences seen through the eyes of a sweet innocent puppy dog somehow allows those discoveries…some fun, some not so fun… to transcend barriers and become totally identifiable to everyone. ”
The LIKAH! team includes: WENDY SEYB (Director) whose career highlights include choreographing The Pee Wee Herman Show for Broadway and HBO, choreographing Sting, Kevin Spacey, Oscar Isaac, Renee Fleming, and James Taylor at Carnegie Hall, and developing the next musical from the Tony Award-winning team of Urinetown.
