How to Stage Your Own Musical: Steve Garvey and Jay Stern of The Bardy Bunch

Steve Garvey wrote a really excellent musical called The Bardy Bunch—a mashup of The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, and various Shakespeare plotlines. It premiered at the 2011 New York Fringe Fest, and Steve and director Jay Stern have been working to get it back on stage ever since.

A few months ago I attended a showcase for investors and spoke to Steve and Jay about the play’s beginnings and how these two Broadway outsiders are working the system to make their (Off) Broadway debut.

Springtime and the Theatre

Mike: Logan, it finally feels like spring! This is how spring affects me: iced coffees/teas (I already bought three in the last two days), rooftop bars or sitting outside for a drink or bite. Free time in the park, or walking along the Hudson, which I’ve missed doing because it’s been too cold to really enjoy it.
