I have written the music, lyrics and librettos for the following three musicals. For more details, please contact me by visiting my website at www.manchester.ac.uk and go to ‘alex baratta’.

LOVE FROM ABOVE – Performed at the Mayflower Club in North Hollywood, California on 12/1/91 and 12/6/98. This is a love story in the mold of the TV show ‘Touched by an Angel’. Through the delivery of love letters, an angel brings together a lonely man and woman. Sample songs include What a Time We’ll Have and Love Doesn’t Have to Be a Stranger. A VHS videotaped copy of the musical is available (website located at www.mayflowerclub.com).

BETWEEN TWO WARS – An interracial love story between a black American GI and a white German woman during World War II. The GI is rescued by the German woman and realises he is caught between two enemies: the Nazis, and racism within his own army ranks, hence the title. Sample songs include The Hometown I Remember and The Love That I’ve Been Waiting For.

ONLY IN LA – A parody about life in LA with people singing about their own unique ‘LA experience’. Here we see the aspiring garage band, the big shot movie director and the new age spiritual guru, among others. Sample songs include I’m Having an Affair and I’m Starting a New Religion.

Playwright/librettist seeking composer and/or producer to write score for my thirty-song play Denial and Recovery (alternate titles; Carpe DiemThe Elephant in the Living Room) which treats the topics of alcoholism and codependency in a lighthearted yet serious manner in a non-preachy, creative, highly entertaining format.  Evoking every emotion from the gut-wrenching to the ridiculuos in an old-fashioned classical Broadway style, the play is a blend reminiscent of Shakespeare, Sondheim, and Seuss.  No payments now, seeking partner to share profits when play is produced.
