singer-songwriter + theatremaker

Daniel Zaitchik

Hello. I make music and music-theatre.

As a singer-songwriter my recorded projects include BAD DANCER, SUMMER OF THE SODA FOUNTAIN GIRLS, and various singles you can find on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and other such places - some released under my name and others as Blue Bottle Collection, my old band.

My theatre projects include Picnic at Hanging Rock, Darling Grenadine, The Costume, and Suprema (with playwright jordan harrison.) My work has been developed at companies including Roundabout Theatre Company, Lincoln Center Theater, the Eugene O'neill Theater Center, New Dramatists, Ars Nova, and Goodspeed Musicals.  

Some recent stuff: The Costume, my new one act, one-boy musical, premiered as part of Inner Voices at the Barrow Group Theatre off-broadway. Darling Grenadine played at Goodspeed and the Marriott Theatre; Picnic at Hanging Rock was produced at Princeton University.

Coming up: Iā€™m in the midst of recording my next singer-songwriter album, a collection of tunes inspired by the natural world. It will be out this fall. And Darling Grenadine will have its NYC premiere at Roundabout Underground this winter.

I've been given some nice honors including the 2017 Kleban Prize for most promising Musical Theatre Lyricist. I'm sure there's more to say but i do not enjoy navigating the tone of a bio i am writing for myself. Things i do enjoy include elephants, whales, pigs, goats and dogs. Also sloths and wombats.

Thanks for stopping by!
