One of my plays was produced in Los Angeles last year. Who knows? Maybe someday I'll get to Broadway. When (if) I do, I'll be asked to write my bio for the PLAYBILL. The trouble is, if I list that I am primarily a TV writer it’s like putting a big target on my chest for New York theater critics. So I thought I’d fudge, tailor it a tad for the Broadway theater crowd. What do you think of this?
is the adopted son of Stephen Sondheim. His godfather was Bob Fosse who
he met while walking Gwen Verdon’s dog. He spent his formative years
building the sets for LES MISERABLES. A Peace Corps stint followed where
for two years he introduced the Broadway musical to poverty stricken
villages throughout Cambodia.
Ken returned to New York where he
walked Carol Channing’s husband. He became somewhat of a play doctor,
coming in uncredited to save A CHORUS LINE, PROOF, SUNDAY IN THE PARK
WITH GEORGE (originally titled: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH SHLOMO). WHO'S
AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, AVENUE Q., AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ (additional
dialogue), GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS (talking Mamet out of the dance numbers),
and THE ODD COUPLE (originally titled: TWO AND A HALF MEN).
An experimental work of his own played two nights in Boston and two nights in St. Louis. It was called the 2004 WORLD SERIES.
He has never seen a television show, watched a movie, or read any book not written by John Simon or Frank Rich.
