Mr. David Yazbek

A varied career as a recording artist, Emmy-winning TV and film writer, music producer, and pianist has somehow led DAVID YAZBEK to become one of Broadway’s preeminent composer/lyricists. His most recent Broadway musical, The Band’s Visit, opened on Broadway to rave reviews, won ten Tony Awards, including Best Score and Best Musical, and has been named to every Best of the Year list for 2017. The show also received the Lucille Lortel Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical.  Yazbek’s next musical, Tootsie, begins performances March 29, 2019 on Broadway. His previous three Broadway shows, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, were all nominated for Best Score Tony Awards. He’s also received three Grammy nominations and a Drama Desk Award. Yazbek won an Outstanding Writing Emmy Award for his stint on Late Night with David Letterman.  He scored the last season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, wrote the theme song to Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, and has written hundreds of songs, scripts, scores and jingles for adult and children’s TV.  As a recording artist, Yazbek is responsible for five albums—The Laughing ManTock, Damascus, Tape Recorder, and Evil Monkey Man.  He has written and/or produced for such acts as XTC, Ruben Blades, The Persuasions, Joe Jackson, Tito Puente and many others.  As a performer, he and his band are engaged in an ongoing series of monthly shows at NYC’s 54 Below club.
