BIO: Noel Katz writes musical comedies: The most recent, Our Wedding, was actually his wedding, got full page coverage in The New York Times and the CD sells at www.WeddingMusical.com. Murder at the Savoy (or, Pulley of the Yard) sold out at the 50th Edinburgh Festival, got five stars from The Scotsman, and is one of four productions he's had in Great Britain. Spilt Milk was spotlighted in The New Yorker and Popsicle Palace was well-reviewed in The Los Angeles Times. His other musicals include Area 51, The Christmas Bride, On the Brink, The New U. and The Heavenly Theatre.

Noel Katz teaches improvisation: For years, he's been a highlight of Artistic New Directions' Summer Improv Retreat. He's done the scores for a variety of Second City (NY) improv-based revues, including We Built This City on Rent Control, A Time For Heroes and Hoagies, Generation F'd and the all-improvised revue, And Then He Wrote. He's utilized song improvisation at Fairlegh-Dickinson University, Circle-in-the-Square and National Dance Institute.

Noel Katz songs are often heard in cabarets and at auditions. The New York Sun praised his incidental songs for the play, Couplets, at Collective Unconscious, as did Talkin' Broadway for his title number for Cloud Nine. Lunatics and Lovers was a recent revue of his songs at The Triad including "Fugue For Cell Phones," "How Could They Have Missed?" and "She Smelled Like Chocolate."
