Did you get a Facebook friend request from me? I want to connect with as many people in the arts as possible, since projects often arise quickly and without warning, and I'm looking to create an accessible network of collaborators for future productions. I am especially interested in connecting with actors, musicians, producers, media figures, and production personnel in theatre and film in New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington, D.C., Boston, Los Angeles, and London.

Phil Darg is the author of more than two dozen plays and musicals and the composer/producer of more than 300 musical works (some broadcast on MTV and The History Channel).
