RN Joins Rhyme Combinator "Cofounders: The Musical"

“Think Broadway’s Hamilton meets HBO’s Silicon Valley” boasts Rhyme Combinator’s description of their new musical in development. “Cofounders” (previously named ZipSloth) celebrates the rich culture & burden of Bay Area creativity and innovation.

I am happy to join the writing team and cast (Kamaiyah) for this promising work that intends to “capture the attention of the next generation, developed right here in the Bay's diverse cultural community from Silicon Valley to Vallejo.”  The writing team for “CoFounders” consists of Beau Lewis, Adesha Adefela, & Brent Schulkin with co-producers Anthony Veneziale (Broadway’s In the Heights, Freestyle Love Supreme, Speechless) and Sara Faith Alterman (Mortified). It features music from Budo (Macklemore), Jeff Kite (Julian Casablancas and the Voidz), and Deep Watterz, while linking with Bay Area hiphop legends Hieroglyphics.
