For the last few months Max has had the privilege to be associate composer/sound designer for the next chapter in the Paradiso universe. On July 21st Paradiso: Chapter 2 opened! Some may call this an "Escape Room." We prefer to call it an immersive, video/sound/object-driven, narrative/installation/performance with puzzles. It has brought together an amazing team of artists -- Under creator Michael Counts, director Ashley Tata, composer/sound designer Aaron Meicht, prop master Justin Cox, writer John Fram, projection designers Brad Peterson and Katy Tucker.
The music of Max Silverman with lyrics by Ellington Berg will be featured at 4th Wall Theatre's Musical Theatre Composer Showcase. Pieces will be performed by instrumentalists and singers from Broadway and from the 4th Wall Theatre Company. Click here for more info!

Max is excited to have been cast in an evening featuring the music of two rising stars on the musical theatre scene: Goldrich and Heisler. The first women writing team ever to be honored with the Fred Ebb Award for Musical Theatre Songwriting, their songs are witty and charming built around familiar themes in life and love.
