ENCORE SHOWS OF
JENNIFER BARNART: IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Due to demand and 3 sold out houses, we'll be bringing back Avenue Q and Sesame Street's Jennifer Barnhart for another 2 shows at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. The shows will be on Sunday, November 17 & Sunday, November 24th @7:00PM.

After years of playing well with others - whether singing backup for friends' shows, or crooning alongside a cast of puppet characters - Jennifer Barnhart finally steps into the spotlight in her first solo cabaret, fittingly titled, "It's About Time!" Alan Muraoka will direct two evenings of stories, silliness and song as Jennifer shares the journey that led her to two of the most famous streets in the world: Broadway and Sesame Street.

Performances will be on two consecutive Sunday evenings at 7:00 pm, March 31st and April 7th, at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, downstairs at the Westbank Cafe on 42nd Street. Jennifer will be accompanied by music director Gary Adler, bassist Mary Ann McSweeney, and percussionist Michael Croiter, all of whom were in the original Avenue Q orchestra. There will be special appearances by some other Avenue Q residents as well.

SESAME STREET'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Sesame Street, and we've been celebrating with so many events: We had a street-naming ceremony here in NYC, and 63rd St. & Broadway is now officially named "Sesame Street." I had the honor of performing and presenting at the 2019 Daytime Emmy Awards. We filmed a 50th Annivesary primetime special which will air in November 2019 with an amazing group of guest stars, and we also had the honor of meeting First Lady Michele Obama at our annual Sesame Gala.



AVENUE Q

I had the honor of being the Resident Director of this Tony-winning show as it finished its run at New World Stages.



GOLD MOUNTAIN

In May 2019 I directed a concert version of Jason Ma's new musical Gold Mountain in Salt Lake City and Ogden for the Transcontinental Railroad's 150th Celebration.

Performances in Salt Lake City were at the Regent Street Black Box at The Eccles Theater and performances in Ogden took place at Peery's Egyptian Theater.

SESAME STREET MONSTER FOODIES

In 2017 we began this new segment on Sesame Street called Monster Foodies, pairing the beloved Cookie Monster with a Muppet named Gonger (from the British children's show Furchester Hotel) working in their own food truck and fielding orders from live children via video message. To complete their recipe, the monsters drive the truck to a specific location and learn about where certain foods originally come from. I had the honor of directing a few of these, and will be directing another batch of episodes this spring.

SESAME STREET

I had the honor of directing some scenes for the current season of “Sesame Street” with Tony-winning actor Bill Irwin. Bill is back portraying “Mr. Noodle,” and the fact that I got to be in a room with him and share ideas was definitely a highlight of my directing career. 



THE REPORT

Martin Casella's haunting play, The Report just completed its run at NY International Fringe festival, and was met with full houses and critical success. Here's what the critics said:

"Huge kudos to director Alan Muraoka for wringing the best out of his actors and his staging, and… last but not least, here's hoping that the show will move, get booked for a run. It's well worth seeing again and again."
- Julia Polinsky, Theatrescene.com

"The play unfolds as a mystery story. Director Alan Muraoka plunges the audience into the terror and confusion of inciting disaster… This is a verbal play that asks the audience to lean forward and listen closely, but the theatricality of Muraoka's production holds our attention"
- Jason Jacobs, nytheaternow.com

"Director Alan Muraoka does a splendid job keeping things well-paced and accessible for the audience, despite the numerous characters who are being portrayed, the back-and-forth movement of time, and the layers of information we need to sift through." –
- Howard Miller, upstage-downstage.blogspot.com

"The Report is exceptionally well staged by director Alan Muraoka"
- Roark Littlefield, Stagebuddy.com

"4 STARS! "Gripping."
- Dana Varinsky, Time Out

"Director Alan Muraoka marshals the 12-person ensemble through a barrage of overlapping scenes jumping across time and space…Muraoka thrillingly succeeds in not only keeping everything straight, but adding the little details that one would expect from a particularly good mystery novel."
- Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania
