I LOVE YOU BECAUSE - Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunningham

Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunningham - I LOVE YOU BECAUSE

Joshua Salzman (music) and Ryan Cunningham (book and lyrics) met at the NYU Tisch Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. Their thesis musical, I Love You Because, went on to be professionally produced Off-Broadway, earned a Drama Desk nomination for the team, spawned a cast album on PS Classics, and garnered a licensing deal with Theatrical Rights Worldwide, resulting in productions both nationally and internationally. All of the videos on this page are from that show, and feature Farah Alvin, David A. Austin, Stephanie D'Abruzzo and Colin Hanlon.

They continue their collaboration with many projects; Queen Esther, a family musical comedy based on the story of Purim, commissioned by the Kaufman Center; Next Thing You Know, a song cycle currently in development with director John Simpkins; and as contributing songwriters on the Disney Channel's "Johnny and the Sprites."
