Daniel Zaitchik

Hello. I'm a multidisciplinary artist who primarily creates music and music-theatre.

As a singer-songwriter my recording 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.

As a playwright-composer my projects include PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, DARLING GRENADINE, 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: DARLING GRENADINE premiered at Goodspeed in AUgust 2017 and was later showcased at The National Alliance For Musical THeatre's 2017 Fall Conference and Roundabout's Underground Reading SeriesPICNIC AT HANGING ROCK was produced at Princeton University;

Up next: The Costume - a new one person musical for Premieres' Inner Voices in NYC this October. 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.
