In Switzerland, she performed the role of Madame Giry in The Phantom of the Opera in both English and German. Taylor is featured on the platinum-selling CD Incantation with Tim Wheater.

Maureen Taylor will celebrate the CD Launch on April 23rd at 4PM at Don’t Tell Mama in NYC with one performance. The venue is at 343 West 46th Street between 8th and 9th Aves. Don’t Tell Mama is a CASH ONLY room and there is no cover charge for this show. There is a $20, two drink minimum. Please make your reservations here:

“From the simple to the sublime, it’s been fun discovering how Michael’s lyrics really resonate with so many significant events in my life!” said Maureen Taylor. “I also love the versatility created by his collaboration with so many wonderful, diverse composers.”

Those composers include Artie Bressler, Ned Paul Ginsburg, John C. Introcaso, Paul Katz, Sheldon Levin, Gerald Jay Markoe, Peter Millrose, Steven Silverstein, Joseph Thalken, and Jack Urbont.

Michael Colby is known as the creator of such unique musicals as Charlotte Sweet (with Gerald Jay Markoe), Tales of Tinseltown (with Paul Katz), Mrs. McThing (with Jack Urbont based on a book by Mary Chase), the Broadway bound Dangerous (with John C. Introcaso), and Slay It with Music (with Paul Katz), among other shows. He is the author of the memoir The Algonquin Kid: Adventures Growing Up in New York’s Legendary Hotel.

Maureen Taylor: Cosmic Connections – The Lyrics of Michael Colby is also the debut album of the newly formed Brainstorm Records!

Brainstorm Records is a new division of Brainstorm Theatrics, the award-winning entertainment production company of multi-faceted musical artists (and spouses) Frank Galgano and Matt Castle.  Together they have decades of experience in music arranging, orchestrating, directing, producing, and recording Broadway’s top artists and global entertainment brands.
