My name is Andy Pope. I am a lifelong musician, singing teacher, and musical playwright. In recent years, I have also become a social activist and a regular columnist for the social justice newspaper, Street Spirit. My column, Homeless No More, encourages those who live outdoors to seek indoor residence tailored to their individual needs.
For many years, the expression Eden in Babylon has served as a kind of “catch phrase” among those who know me well. It describes the thrust of my artistic endeavors, and points not only to my own life philosophy, but also to the ideal of one’s finding a kind of happiness or Paradise amid the confusion and chaos of the modern world.
In more recent times, Eden in Babylon is also the title of a new musical that I have written. Please feel free to peruse my pages. There you will find sound files, a demo, a script, and lots of other material pertinent to the musical I have written about homelessness in 21st Century America. My blog posts also revolve around this theme.
I choose not to give the story away at this time. However, earlier when I did post a detailed synopsis, I received the comments that you will find below. I hope you will find in me a unique perspective, and that you will gain from exposure to my work.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
A little bit goes a long, long way.
