Sam Carner and Derek Gregor

Sam and Derek received their MFAs from NYU’s Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program in 2003. Their musical Unlock’d won a Richard Rodgers Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and was produced at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2007, where it won the “Best of the Fest” audience award and received Talkin’ Broadway Summer Theatre Festival Citations for “Outstanding New Musical” and “Outstanding Original Theatrical Score.” Unlock’d has gone on to workshops at Theatre Works, Palo Alto and the Ravinia Festival outside Chicago.

Sing, But Don’t Tell, a concert of their songs, was presented at NYMF in the fall of 2009, and they currently have several other projects in development. At the end of February 2010, twelve cast members from the Broadway revival of HAIR will perform an evening of their songs in a show called Buzzed. Sam and Derek were in residence at Yaddo in December of 2005.

Derek writes country music with Laura Bell Bundy, and one of their songs was recently featured on her CD Longing for a Place Already Gone. In 2001, he founded the rock band M-LAB: http://www.mlabmusic.com. Their new CD, A Bold And Hopeful Spark, will be available early in 2010.

Over the past several years, Sam has lectured regularly on various musical-theatre-history-related topics at Yale. He's taught musical-theatre history and analysis courses at both New York University and Yale.
