Five Questions with 
"The Morning After/The Night Before"
Composer Jeff Beinstock taps wild youth for FringeNYC musical


What exactly happened last night? Secrets are unearthed and headaches are nursed in composer-writer Jeff Bienstock's raunchy, rollicking new musical comedy The Morning After/The Night Before.” FringeNYC Propaganda recently chatted with Bienstock about the creative impetus for his new work.

Jeff, please describe your show in one sentence. OK, two.

 “The Morning After/The Night Before” is a theatrical striptease. We immediately reveal Sunday morning. It's followed by a tantalizing glimpse of Saturday evening. We save the unveiling of Saturday night for the very end of the show.

In what strange test tube was the idea for this musical born?

I can't remember exactly. It might have been as far back as ten years ago. I grew up in the small-ish city of Santa Monica, Calif., and I often woke up after a night’s worth of hazy misadventures. My friends had an equally bizarre story to tell, which often intersected with my story in unexpected ways.
