I Am THE LORD – NY Music Theater Festival

Les the Least

Book, Music and Lyrics by GERALD FRIED
Directed by CHARLES MARYAN

Gerald Fried is an Oscar and Grammy-nominated, multi-nominated Emmy-winning film and TV composer, playwright, librettist, woodwind performer (jazz and concert), and actor. He co-wrote the Emmy-winning album Roots with Quincy Jones.

This inventive staging of the Emmy winning composer’s jazz-flavored oratorio features Kimberly Sogioka as the narrator, Mauricio Trejo as Les the Least, Scott Bearden as Satan, Matthew Curran as the Lord, and Elizabeth de Trejo.  Fried conducts the 8-piece jazz orchestra which includes trumpet player Lew Soloff of Blood, Sweat and Tears. Charles Maryan directs.

Structured like Bach’s perennial favorite “St. Matthew Passion,” “Les the Least” is a comic, musically inventive alternative to the traditional holiday oratorio repertoire.
