What Makes Sammy Run?

The Male Animal

Armin revised the book and directed this 2006 production of the musical based on Budd Schulberg's classic novel, inspiring composer Ervin Drake to revise and expand his original score. Both Schulberg and Drake were delighted with the new version.

With the approval of the playwrights' estates, Armin eliminated the racially stereotypical maid and breathed new life into this long-neglected comedy by James Thurber and Elliot Nugent which took a stand on the issue of academic freedom. There have been three regional productions so far.

 

Letters from the Inside

Say, Darling

Based on Australian John Marsden's novel, this compelling two-character drama dealt with the effect of violence on the lives of two teenage girls. The Star-Ledger rated it one of the top five plays of the 2006-2007 New Jersey theater scene.

This sold out off-off-Broadway revival of the 1957 Broadway comedy featured a score by Jule Styne, Betty Comden and Adolph Green. It was inspired by novelist Richard Bissell's involvement with the hit musical The Pajama Game.
