Jeremy Desmon

Jeremy is an award-winning musical theatre bookwriter whose stories have played to audiences around the world.

The Girl in the Frame, seen in over a dozen productions, earned him the prestigious Edward Kleban Prize as America’s most promising Musical Theatre Bookwriter. Pump Up The Volume, his adaptation of the 1990 film, has been developed at Goodspeed Musicals and The Human Race Theatre. He is also known for the high-school jukebox musical, Cyrano de BurgerShack, the wildly imaginative comedy I See London, I See France: The Underwear Musical and the topical Virtually Me, recently on tour with TheatreworksUSA.

Recently, Jeremy rewrote the book to Good News, the DeSylva, Brown & Henderson classic musical that opened Goodspeed Musicals’ 50th Anniversary Season in 2013. He is also an accomplished playwright (7½ Wondrous Act(s) of True Love), web comedy producer (Man of the People) and lyricist (Surviving the Avalanche, a contemporary musical revue, produced at Barrington Stage Company).

In addition, Jeremy has written “family theatrical” touring arena shows for some of the world’s most recognizable characters, including Disney Live’s Mickey’s Music Festival!, Universal’s Curious George Live! and Sesame Workshop’s Elmo Rocks! He’s written multiple editions of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and recently completed new adaptations of Disney’s Tangled and Pixar’s Brave for Disney On Ice’s worldwide tour.
