Adam Mathias

By day Adam is a database developer — he creates databases that help art galleries and artists track their artwork. But by night, on weekends, and whenever he can grab some time, Adam is a brilliant librettist and song writer. He has written a play called See Rock City that ranks as one of my top five most favorite musicals, in the same league with Rent, Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera, and Mamma Mia. Two years ago, he wrote another splendid musical called The Passion of George W. Bush that premiered at the NY Fringe Festival. Written in a few short months, the work was genius and hysterical.
What fascinates and inspires me about Adam is his ability to make time for his passion – musical theatre, while holding down a demanding, responsible job; being a supportive and loyal friend and boyfriend; staying current with movies, plays and books; and making time to contra dance. I guess the dynamic mix feeds his spirit and helps him create musical works that feed our spirits.
