My name is Andy Pope. I am a lifelong pianist, composer, and musical playwright. In recent years, I have also been trying my hand at journalism. As such, I have been published in the independent news site Berkeleyside, the blog site Classism Exposed, the religious news site Spokane Faith and Values, and a social justice newspaper called Street Spirit. In the latter, my regular column, “Homeless No More,” encourages those who live outdoors to seek indoor residence tailored to their individual needs.
In that spirit, I have written a new musical: Eden in Babylon. Please feel free to peruse my pages and posts. You will find sound files, a demo, a script, and lots of other material pertinent to this theme.
I won’t give the story away at this time. However, a detailed synopsis posted earlier on this page brought the comments you will read below. I hope you will resonate with the spirit that has brought to the world a musical about homelessness in 21st Century America.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
A little bit goes a long, long way.
