Dan Furman


Dan hails from Old Hickory, Tennessee (just outside Nashville). He began playing piano and composing music at an early age and went on to study composition and jazz piano at Oberlin Conservatory. After moving to New York in 2003 to play jazz, he began writing for music theater as well. He spent four years in the BMI Lehman Engels Musical Theater Workshop. Furman is founder of Brooklyn Tavern Theater, which puts on original musicals in taverns in Brooklyn and beyond. He is composer/lyricist/bookwriter of Impossible But True, and composer and lyricist for Ybor City (with Anita Gonzalez, bookwriter) and Sign In the Six O’Clock Sky (with bookwriter Arnold Schulman). He is currently developing Walls and Windows, an immersive musical based on the work of Edward Hopper and The Proust Virus, a stage musical about video game characters who question the meaning of life after Proust’s work is uploaded into their game. He lives in Brooklyn with neuroscientist Kim Allen and two bunnies and works as a jazz pianist and vocal accompanist at clubs and acting schools in Manhattan.
