Musical Theater

Janine McGuire & Arri Lawton Simon

McGuire & Simon (Janine McGuire and Arri Lawton Simon) are a NYC-based musical theatre writing team and members of the BMI Advanced Workshop.  They are currently adapting the 2006 Eytan Fox film The Bubble for the stage as BORDERS, the story of two men, one Israeli and one Palestinian, who fall in love.  Their immersive musical EXPRESS premiered at the New York Transit Museum in September 2015, was re-mounted in Spring 2017, and was recently expanded for a workshop production at New York Film Academy.  They also wrote the songs for the new children’s musical KIBBY THE SPACE DOG, commissioned by the Wichita Children’s Theatre and Dance Center, which will premiere in April 2018.  Collectively they have written and produced concerts, stage musicals, plays, film scores, orchestral pieces, choral works, and custom songs in addition to teaching musical theatre and performing arts outreach in the community.
