The Bent Sword (musical) is an adaptation of Steve’s Young Adult Fantasy novel, which was published by Cedar Fort in 2010. The show was produced at the Provo Theater by the New Play Project theater company in 2010. Steve’s wife Teresa was director, and Steve starred as Steffin. All who were involved can attest that it was a magical experience. While the MIDI instruments Steve had to work with at the time were a little less than spectacular, the album, which was recorded in Steve’s basement, is a good showcase of my abilities as a composer and lyricist.

Not quite Broadway, but for having no budget, it turned out pretty awesome.
