"I'm honoured to represent this Tony Nominated, multi-award winning genius whose works have graced the best stages in the world and attracted the biggest names in the business such as Betty Buckley, Kelli O'Hara, Yo-Yo Ma, Norm Lewis, Terrence Mann, and F. Murray Abraham. One of the very last of the great composer/ lyricists of astonishing versatility - from glorious sweeping operetta and pure, classical musical theatre to today's more conversational genres - all bound by brilliant story telling and lyrics that Sondheim, Schwartz and Hart would be happy to call their own. A legend in his own time." - Keith Merrill
Jeffrey Stock composes a wide range of music and lyrics, including Broadway musicals, orchestral works and artsongs. He composed the score for the Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical TRIUMPH OF LOVE, starring Betty Buckley, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham and Tony nominee Susan Egan. The show was named USA Today’s Best New Musical of 1997-98. The New Yorker raved: “Smart, fresh and funny... Jeffrey Stock makes a remarkable Broadway debut.” The New York Post wrote: “I was enthralled by Jeffrey Stock’s score... dazzling!” TRIUMPH has received over 100 productions at theaters around the world in multiple languages.
He is the composer and lyricist of the musical A ROOM WITH A VIEW, which was produced at the San Diego Old Globe and subsequently at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theater. Variety called the score “gorgeous.” Broadway World said: “Stock’s music is heavenly.” The LA Times noted: “The songs by Stock carefully set up the characters while briskly advancing the action.”
Jeffrey’s symphonic and choral work LULIE THE ICEBERG premiered at Carnegie Hall featuring the world’s most celebrated cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Pamela Frank and saxophonist Paul Winter, narrated by legendary actor Sam Waterston. Based on a book by HIH Princess Takamado of Japan, LULIE was recorded on Sony Classical.
He has written the music and lyrics for his most recent musical DUTCH MASTER, commissioned by Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theater and workshopped at both the Prospect Theater and the York Theater. He also contributed music to the Off-Broadway musical SONGS FROM AN UNMADE BED, which opened to rave reviews at New York Theater Workshop. Theatermania called it “the musical of the season.”
For the last decade, Jeffrey has worked frequently in China, performing music, lecturing and giving master classes in song interpretation at the Shanghai Theatre Academy, Beijing’s Central Academy of Drama, the Shanghai Music Conservatory, and the Beijing Contemporary Music Institute. He recently composed the score for a new musical about the life of Kublai Khan, called XANADU, performed in Beijing and Inner Mongolia. Jeffrey is a recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship for music composition and the Jonathan Larson Grant (a memorial fund for the composer of Rent), as well as an NEA grant for musical theater. He has won residencies at artist colonies including McDowell, Millay, and Blue Mountain Center. He has spent many years studying Balinese music and culture and is a fluent speaker of the Indonesian language.
