Pop!  A New musical premiering at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

i'm excited to be joining the incredibly talented team of POP!  The Musical at the Hollywood Fringe Fesitval.  

 

“POP!″ is a musical adventure story – a quest for two of the most elusive kinds of treasure: love and gold, or more specifically, a gold record. To succeed, our motley crew have to battle personal and professional demons that bar the way. Each must discover the mysterious power of imagination and one of life’s most fantastically magical truths – that with passion, perseverance and courage… dreams really can come true.

 

I play Tommy, a rock musician struggling to stay relevant in the ever changing landscape of the popular musical world.  

 

The show goes up June 19th, 20th, & 21st at the Hudson Backstage Theatre.

a quick update ...

hello Internets! Well, I'm not going to lie. I'm writing this post from here ... beachside in tel aviv. I'm here supporting my brother & team USA in the maccabi games, and I'm having an amazing time doing it. Falling for Make Believe was a blast, & I was certainly sorry to have to say goodbye to that piece, that role, and the amazing people I shared the experience with. Thanks for all of you who came out & showed your support. Since I updated the since, many of you took the time to send me a message after the show, and your support & feedback were incredibly valuable. The story of who Larry Hart was is certainly not done being told, & I hope that our contribution is just the first of many addendums to his history.

On a different note, I'm excited to say that shortly after I return from Israel, I'm set to begin rehearsals at one of my favorite places on earth, Rockwell Table & Stage, on what will be our third iteration of FOR THE RECORD: BAZ LUHRMANN. In fact, I just finished reading the script and was so excited about it that I wanted to write a post to tell you about it. It's totally different than any of the versions you may have seen before, incorporating "The Great Gatsby" for the first time, and featuring new scenes and songs from MOULIN ROUGE, STRICTLY BALLROOM, & ROMEO + JULIET. Really, I can't wait, & hope to see you there. Previews will begin in late August.

And that is all I got! Thanks for reading, more soon!

the new & improved bengoldberg.com

Point and Fact: I've owned the domain name "bengoldberg.com" for at least 10 years now. I know. Way ahead of my time. Managing and updating and maintaining it through this time has always been a bit of a chore for me. So I'm excited to have finally gotten the ball rolling on a new, improved, and much easier to update version of my site. It's had a lot of looks and purposes throughout it's life, and I'm proud to say this one is its finest. I'm also not embarrassed that I think it's really cool that I'm writing this post in bed from an iPhone app. So thanks for checking out the site, please check back soon for more coolness, and if you feel so inclined, head over to the contact page to add yourself to my mailing list to stay up to date on all things Ben Goldberg.

falling for make believe

falling for make believe

i'm thrilled to be creating to role of Lorenz Hart in the new musical, "Falling For Make Believe" at The Colony Theatre in Burbank.  

Lorenz (Larry) Hart was one of Broadway's all-time greats, the brilliant lyricist who penned “My Funny Valentine,” “Blue Moon,” “Manhattan,” “Falling in Love With Love,” “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” “Where or When,” and countless other classics. As half of the legendary team of Rodgers and Hart, he lived a life of dizzying heights and crushing lows. Now Mark Saltzman (author of The Colony’s smash hit Clutter: The True Story of the Collyer Brothers Who Never Threw Anything Out) captures them all in an intimate look at the life and times of this lyrical genius, a brand new musical developed by The Colony featuring some of the most memorable songs of the 20th Century.
