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.  

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.

Up next: Darling Grenadine will play at the Marriott Theatre outside Chicago next summer. Also currently planning my next singer-songwriter album.

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, and dogs.  Also sloths and wombats.  Thanks for stopping by.
