Musical Theatre: Book Writing Elective

Aaron writes plays and musicals about people who are unable to communicate with each other successfully or healthily, and he often covers perception, delusion, cult behavior, abuse, and triangular relationships. His work is political but accessible and funny, and it often experiments with form. His plays and musicals include The Star Killers, Only Child, A Bushel and a Peck, Nice Nails, The Travels, and Hanukkah Harriet, which is published and licensed by Stage Partners. His work has been produced and developed by Clubbed Thumb, the Playwrights’ Center, the New York Musical Festival, Jewish Theatre of Bloomington, Stages Bloomington, and the BMI Workshop. Awards and residencies include Clubbed Thumb Early-Career Writers’ Group, Playwrights’ Center Core Apprenticeship, BMI Advanced Musical Theatre Workshop, Roundabout Space Jam, and the Clubbed Thumb Constitution Commission. Aaron graduated from the Theatre program at Northwestern University, where he studied playwriting under Laura Schellhardt, and he received his MFA in Playwriting from Indiana University, where he studied under Peter Gil-Sheridan. Aaron is on faculty at SUNY New Paltz in their Creative Writing Program. www.aaronricciardi.com
