My name is Andy Pope. I am a lifelong pianist, composer, and musical playwright. In recent years, I have also been involved with journalism. My work has appeared on the independent news site Berkeleyside, the blog site Classism Exposed, and the news site Spokane Faith and Values. In addition, I’ve been published in a newspaper called Street Spirit, where my regular column — Homeless No More — encourages those having experienced homelessness during the transition to indoor living.
I’ve also written a new musical, Eden in Babylon, which explores the effects of homelessness on the youth of today’s America. Feel free to peruse my pages and posts. You’ll find sound files, a demo, a script, and other material pertinent to this project. While I don’t want to give away the whole story on the front page, the comments below are from people familiar with it. Developments toward its interactive production are currently described in my blog posts, with further details in my newsletter. I hope you appreciate my work.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
