Author, Composer and Lyricist of Ascend, the Musical
ASCEND, written and composed by Lori Zabadal-Dayton in musical collaboration with Kenneth Martinak, is a musical drama revealing the complexities of the human spirit in a contemporary timeless tale; a powerful love story known by millions throughout the world, where betrayal, deceit and denial rule the stage. Many composers have wrestled with putting biblical stories into musical form as seen in Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar. ASCEND reveals the story of Easter with a new perspective in exploring the confusion surrounding the betrayal of Jesus of Nazareth. Lori has progressively developed this musical since premiering her first staged reading three years ago. The premiere of the fully produced show directed by Pat Foti, with a pit orchestra conducted by Drew Allport, runs June 2-4, 2017 at the Endicott Performing Arts Center in Endicott, New York.
