Musical Theater

As a composer, lyricist and librettist of  musical theater, Lisa’s work combines classical music and rock, and leans towards rock opera.  Theatrical productions include “Atom & Eve” directed by Tom O’Horgan at the Westbeth Theater and “Blood & Fire” (librettist Jeff Couchman), originally produced at the York Theater and winner of the ASCAP Musical Theater Workshop with Stephen Schwartz. “Oh! The Sport of Love” a bawdy comic operetta for mezzo-soprano, has been performed from intimate parlors to starlit stages world wide, and Permission, Heffter’s one-act rock opera, is in the process of being re-staged after a sold out two week run at The Triad in NYC.  Heffter is currently collaborating with Jean Witter, librettist, on Mars: 2076, a futuristic musical based on the American Revolution of 1776.

You can indeed write musical theatre. Tuneful, smart, character driven, those are all words I’d use to describe your work. I was most drawn to the rock based pieces ….”                             – Broadway Producer James Rocco

“…wide variety of musical style” and “especially drawn to your ‘moving, powerful ballads.” – Broadway Producer Daryl Roth
