In his short lifetime, composer / lyricist Peter Foley (1967-2021) created a remarkable body of work, including five full-length musicals and an operetta—each vastly different from the others in subject matter, tone, and musical style—as well as cabaret and art songs, choral pieces, and dozens of instrumental scores for plays and television. For his music and lyrics to The Hidden Sky (produced by Prospect in 2010) he received the Richard Rodgers Award, Stephen Sondheim Award, Jonathan Larson Foundation Award, an NEA New American Works grant, and a Barrymore nomination for Outstanding Original Music.
