About
My name is Ferdinand. I am a professional composer, songwriter, book writer and lyricist who specialise in Musicals. I want to collaborate with lyricists and writers who are also into Musicals. I've done several musicals and one of them, "Something to Crow About" ( a comedy about Cockfighting ) had a brief run at the La Mama's Theater - an Off Broadway theatre in New York. There is a clamor to re stage the musical again and I am in talks with producers. I have another musical in the works with a production date for 2018 in the US.
