MANNA-HATA opens tonight!

Peculiar Works Project's MANNA-HATA, featuring ten all-new original Howard Fishman songs, opens June 7 (tonight!) and runs until June 23rd.

The multimedia theater experience is being staged in spaces throughout the gigantic James A. Farley Post Office (across from Penn Station), a mostly vacant building pegged as the future home of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Station.

MANNA-HATA was written by playwright Barry Rowell and is directed by Kathleen Amshoff, and features original movement, choreography, film and singing by a large ensemble of actors, singers and dancers.

Opening night is sold out, but tickets still remain for the remainder of the run. Get them here.

"A STAR HAS BURNT MY EYE" January 22, 2013 in NYC

On January 22, 2013, Howard and friends will present a work in progress tribute to the relatively unknown American songsmith Connie Converse. "A Star Has Burnt My Eye" traces the unusual life and compelling music of this singular artist who self-recorded a remarkable body of work while living on her own in 1950s New York City.

Featuring special guests Susan Oetgen, Charlotte Mundy, Jean Rohe, Anastasia Barzee, Nathan Peck, and Russell Farhang.

"A Star Has Burnt My Eye" had its workshop premiere at Joe's Pub

and was subsequently performed at Abrons Arts Center.

Tickets are here:

A Star Has Burnt My Eye is an evening of music and multimedia exploration.


Howard stars in a developmental reading of Dead Author Songs, at the 2012 Emerging Artists Theatre New Work series, Thursday March 1, at 9pm at the Tada Theatre.

Dead Author Songs is written by Zac Kline, directed by Christopher Carter Sanderson and produced by NYC's Missing Bolts Productions. It features original music by Howard Fishman.

In Dead Author Songs, two couples come together and fall apart over a dynamic few months. Love and loss push the limits of what it means to embrace someone, while still embracing yourself. Dead Author Songs features songs by singer-songwriter Howard Fishman.

Dead Author Songs will also feature Blair Baker, Leajato Robinson and Kelly Tuohy.
