Episode 31: Composer-Lyricist Bobby Cronin

On this episode of STAGE GROK, I talk with musical theatre composer-lyricist Bobby Cronin, about his projects and the life of a theatre writer. His shows include Mary and Max, Till Death Do Us Part, Welcome to My Life, The Cover, Till Soon, Anne, Alone in the US, Daybreak, and A Christmas Carol. You can buy sheet music of his songs online.

Here's a link to a New York Times article about a song Bobby wrote with Broadway producer Jordan Roth, which Bobby mentions in our interview.
