Julia Meinwald
Julia Meinwald is a Queens-based composer.  Recent projects include a workshop of her musical Le Fou, with lyricist Rob Shapiro and playwright Bekah Brunstetter at New Georges, and Blank Slate, a ten-minute musical with lyricist Gordon Leary commissioned by Prospect Theatre Company.  Prospect produced her one-act Disappeared, also with Gordon Leary, last spring, and the show was workshop-ed at Lincoln Center Directors Lab this summer. Julia’s music has also been featured at the York Theatre, the Cherry Lane Theatre, the Yale Rep, Barrington Stages, Goodspeed Opera House, and the Hangar Theatre.  Her music can be heard in film (Breast Picture with Matt Walsh, The Losers with Josh Gad, Cat on the Prowl with Mary Louise Parker), computer games (Jessica Plunkenstein and the Dusseldorf Conspiracy, The Judgment of Quintus), and dance (Dance New Amsterdam’s Raw Materials, Tze Chun Dance Company.) A proud participant in the New Dramatists 2008 Composer Librettist Development Program, she is now completing a fellowship with the American Lyric Theatre and a Dramatists Guild Fellowship. Julia received her BA in Music from Yale University in 2005, and her M.F.A from NYU Tisch's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program in 2007.
