Dangersparkle and the Lion
Book and lyrics by Lia Tamborra and Harry Einhorn.
Music by Lia Tamborra, Harry Einhorn, and Balint Varga.
DANGERSPARKLE AND THE LION is the epic, touching, comic, and way-too personal tale of the history of the human race as seen through the eyes of two hapless immortals, fallen from heaven and doomed to reincarnate together until they can figure out just how to get along. Exploring the twisted interconnectedness of life, the causal nature of our actions, the nature of faith, and the power of love that runs through it all, this original and truly unique two-person musical is operatic in scope, universal in theme, and intimate in execution. Weaving together myth, world music, story telling, and good old fashioned musical theater, this theatrical romp spans from the dawn of man to the end of days, with stops in ancient Greece, classical India, medieval Europe, the high seas, modern times, and more along the way. It premiered at the Planet Connections Theater Festivity in 2013, and won several awards. It was most recently performed at the Rubin Museum.

ATLANTIS! The Final Hours
Book and Lyrics by Lia Tamborra and Harry Einhorn
Music by Balint Varga, Harry Einhorn and Lia Tamborra
An epic musical exploration of the lost continent's final hours. What happens when an advanced society (despite its giant pyramids, reptilians, foes, and powers of astral projection) gets so caught up in their petty problems they don't notice an impending environmental disaster? A mix of Gilbert and Sullivan, modern minimalism, contemporary and classic music theater, pop, absurdism, ancient lore, and folk songs, Atlantis! was originally performed at the Tada Theater as part of the Emerging Artist Series New Works Festival. The show delighted audiences and is currently being expanded to a full-length production.
