Recording

Hello, it's been a while but i just wanted to say I'm planning on making a recording of "Mystery, Murder, Music".  I have some ideas of who I'm going to cast for the recording, but it's gonna take a while to get everyone to learn their music.  It's not the best, but I would love to hear it with voices...another thing is we need someone to teach it cause I can't play it on the piano.  

 

I've been thinking of:

Heather Gross as Miss Sally

Kelly McGeary as Daphne McDonald (?)

and Alec Richards as Host [mainly because he can belt high notes!!]

 

that's all folks

Catching Up

Hey there!

Yes it's been another month.  I'm sorry.  As you know, i'm in All Shook Up with KOS.  However, during a dance number two saturdays ago, i fell and nearly broke my foot!  I'm fine now, and i learned a VERY important lesson.  ALWAYS WHERE DANCE SHOES WHEN DANCING!!!!!

I got into Christmas in Oz!!!  :)  I'm back with Nicole, Heather, Kayla, Sandy and Casey: my wives!!!  Ooh, and that Mark Scoff...eh

 I actually submitted my play that I wrote with Ben and Nicole, UPSIDE-DOWN to the VIllagers Mini PLaywrights Series, and I will hear about that in the future...they meet in February.

 Heroes is amazing on TV.  Monday's are amazing!!!  Umm...High School is stupid and science is just a stupid waste of my time.  I have to suck it up though.  Well, that's life isn't it? (and irony)

 

That's all folks!!

More CD info

Okay. I didn't feel like charging people 4.99 for each CD.  So, I made a few deals:

1 Cd is $4.99

2 Cd's are $6.99

3 Cd's are $9.99

All 4 Cd's are $12.99

In addition to just emailing me, what goes into the email is ALSO important.  In the e-mail, tell me your full name and address so I can mail you the CD's.  No, I'm not a stalker.  Haha.  I will send you the CD's.  Once you get the CD's, check to see if they work, and then send the money to me.  Write to my email concerning my address.  I'm not putting it on here.  Safety stuff.  Sealed  Thanks!  I just wanna be sure everyone gets what they wanted.

CD'S

Hello!

 I have recently made a decision.  I am gonna start selling my CD'S of the scores for my shows.  The CD'S contain ONLY the music, and no actors singing.  Although it sounds weird, they are good.  Sorry, not very modest.  I think I will only be selling them for $4.99 each or some discount thing when you buy a certain amount.  I have 4 CD'S:

Mystery, Murder, Music (Concept-Original) [31 tracks] *Original works of the show*

Mystery, Murder, Music (Final) [35 tracks] *Original works and new bring together the final version*

The Raven [13 tracks] *My first musical score*

The Best of Matthew Weinstein [16 tracks] *Selections from finished shows and shows I never finished; Lots of stuff no ones ever heard*

 

IF YOU WANT A CD:

Email me!! MattW0810@aol.com

that's all for now!

I'm Back

Yesterday, my Dad picked me up from sleepaway camp and brought me home.  Camp was incredible!  I made so many good friends and I was in 3 good shows---YES THREE!  I also did stagecraft and helped to build some sets.  I was in "Jekyll and Hyde", "On the Town" and "Oh Dad, Poor Dad; Momma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad".  it was worth it.  Now I have three new shows on my rewsume on www.actorsaccess.com and I have been in 25 shows and I now I have many new memories.  It's weird being back home, and yet I feel relief.  I can't wait to spend time with my family and friends.  That's all for now.

One Day More

Hey guys!

 Tomorrow is the day I leave for sleepaway camp.  I will be returning to French Woods Festival in Hancock, NY.  It is a performing arts camp, and I will be auditioning as soon as I get there.  I will be singing "Shiksa Goddess" from The Last 5 Years; one of my favorites by Jason Robert Brown.

Right now, I am spending my last day home with my mom at her office.  Raychull left for sleepaway yesterday, and I called her to check up; she sounded tired so I said good-bye.  We all saw Company last Thursday; and of course (knowing my luck) we got Raul Esparza's understudy!  We were all mad; even my dad!  But, the whole company of the show was incredible.  We were laughing and smiling the whole time.  Then we got autographs afterwards.  It was a rewarding night.

 I'll write at camp if I get the chance!

 -Matt

As of Today...

Hey guys!

 I haven't been on in a while, and I felt I needed to do some catching up.  Rachel, Ben, and Amanda are all well.  If you don't know, they're my best friends.  Lately, I have been in a few shows such as "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" (Playing Judah [A Brother]), "Where the Pencil Lead" [A play written by my 8th grade Language arts teacher] (Billy [Lead Role]), and R&H's "Cinderella" (Ensemble).

 I have been working a lot on Mystery, Murder, Music and have completely finished the writing process.  If only someone could do some workshops with it---That would be truly amazing.

 Well, tonight Rachel Ben and I will be going to New York City to see Raul Esparza in "Company".  Last night, my mom took me to see "A Chorus Line" and I must say that this musical was amazing in every way possible!

 I'll tell you all about later!

The Raven

I have been gone off of the website for a while, but I have returned with GREAT news.  I have written two new musicals, with complete scores: "The Raven" and "Mystery, Murder, Music".

 The Raven

The Raven is a musical based on the poem by Edgar Allan Poe.  It is the tragic story of Joseph More, who is not named in the poem, who has just began coping with the death of his wife Lenore.  After the funeral, Joseph is visited by The Raven, who haunts him for several days.  After a few days, Joseph is visited by the spirit of his wife Lenore and she gives him a key that can take him to Lenore in Heaven-When the time is RIGHT!  She leaves him, all alone.

 In Act Two, Joseph goes to church, where the Raven has followed him.  His concerned friend, Mr. Madison, asks about him, and has constantly bothered Joseph before about life without Lenore.  Joseph, enraged, snaps at Mr. Madison, and starts a fight that ends their friendship.  Later that night, Joseph is sad that he has done this, and is visited by The Raven and the voices...Lenore...Joseph More...Never More...They become louder, and faster, and with a final beat, Joseph collapses, dead.  Mr. Madison arrives moments later, and apologizes at the door, and enters the chamber, to find Joseph dead.  Lenore in heaven, has found out Joseph is dead, and patiently waits for him.  Soon, Joseph arrives and they are at last together, sharing one of the only happy moments in the show.

CURTAIN.
