James will be presenting his first concert of original music in New York City on September 27th! Tickets can be purchased here.

This summer, James will be music directing Summer’s Soldier at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. The original musical is written by Boo Killebrew, Lucy Thurber, and Heather Christian, and features a cast of 80 local performers from the Berkshire region.

James is currently an artist-in-residence at Access Theatre in NYC this spring working on a new musical about Johnny Appleseed, environmentalism, and queer virtue.

He was the recipient of a 2019 Queens Arts Council grant to write a new play, Jo & Laurie, a gay adaptation of Little Women exploring queer friendship. Jo & Laurie will have a workshop in New York City in November, 2019.

He is currently commissioned by Playing for Others in Charlotte, NC for a new children’s musical to premiere in March 2020.
