Jimmy Roberts composed the music for the original I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, second longest-running off-Broadway musical in New York theater history. It has since played all 50 states and over 25 countries around the world. Mr. Roberts also composed The Thing About Men (2003, New York Outer Critics Circle award for Best Musical). His latest show, All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go, written with Catherine Filloux and John Daggett, and directed by Hannah Ryan, Resident Director of Hamilton, was presented at an exciting reading for the Broadway community in September. His children’s musical, The Velveteen Rabbit, toured the United States for well over a decade. Among his recent compositions is a commissioned work: The Heart of the Matter, words by former NEA chairman and poet Dana Gioia (Guggenheim Museum). Another new musical, Rex and Lilli andThe Master, about the lives and careers of Rex Harrison, Lilli Palmer, and Noel Coward, and written with playwright Carey Harrison (Rex’s son), is also in preparation. He is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with noted pianist, Constance Keene.
