singer-songwriter + theatremaker

Daniel Zaitchik

Hello. I'm a multidisciplinary artist who primarily makes 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 my tunes on iTunes or Bandcamp and other such places - some released under my name and others as Blue Bottle Collection, my old band.

As a playwright-composer my projects include Picnic at Hanging Rock, Darling Grenadine, The Costume, and Suprema (with playwright jordan harrison.) My work has been developed and/or produced 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 premiered at Goodspeed; Picnic at Hanging Rock was produced at Princeton University.

Currently: Darling Grenadine is playing at the Marriott Theatre outside Chicago now through August 18th,

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

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!
