Seth Christenfeld is--in some order or other--a lyricist, librettist, dramaturg, playwright, musical theatre historian, social media consultant, proofreader, and probably a few other things that are slipping his mind at the moment.


He has written or cowritten book and/or lyrics for the musicals The Oxford Epidemic, Wait Forever, The Bad Ideas of Jack Andrews, Today I Am a Man, and (The Ballad of) The Man Wreathed in Seaweed.


Raised in the suburbs of New York City, Seth now lives in Manhattan, where he is Literary Manager for the York Theatre Company.  He holds an MFA in Musical Theatre Writing from NYU/Tisch and a BA in Drama Studies from SUNY Purchase.  He is a member of ASCAP, the Dramatists Guild, and the They Might Be Giants Fan Club.


He is clearly not much of a web designer, though.


Other than adding this sentence (and changing one word in the bio above), he has not updated this website since 2016; he probably should do that one of these days.
