Excerpts from staged reading in Dec. 2022 at the Actors Temple Theatre in NYC:
Your Name On My Lips
True Art. True Love.
Sam, a self-taught painter, struggles to get into an art institute; while fighting to hold onto the love of his life, as the materialistic world tugs at her.  With a contemporary, classically-infused score, “Your Name on My Lips” will transport you back to when love was earnest, feelings deep, and romance unabashedly unapologetic.

Go, My Child
music by Eric B. Sirota;  book & lyrics by Eric B. Sirota & Julia Sirota
Leaving one’s parents, infertility and the search for truth, set against a background of xenophobia;
Set in ancient Mesopotamia, Go, My Child is an original account of the early lives of familiar biblical characters.
