James Lapine

Screenplay/Based on the Musical by

JAMES LAPINE (Screenplay/Based on the Musical by) was born in 1949 in Mansfield, Ohio and lived there until his early teens when his family moved to Stamford, Connecticut. He attended public schools before entering Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania where he majored in history. He went on to get an MFA in design from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California.

After graduate school, he moved to New York City where he worked part-time as a waiter; a page and tour guide at NBC; a free-lance photographer and graphic designer; and an architectural preservationist for the Architectural League of New York. One of his free-lance jobs was designing the magazine of the Yale School of Drama, Yale/Theater. The dean of the School of Drama, Robert Brustein, subsequently offered Lapine a full-time job designing all of the printed materials for the School of Drama and the Yale Repertory Theatre, as well as a faculty position teaching a course in advertising design.

While at Yale, his students urged him to direct a play during the annual January period when both faculty and students undertook a project outside of their areas of study or expertise. At their suggestion, Lapine directed a Gertrude Stein play, “Photograph.” The play was five acts, and just three pages in length. It was presented in New Haven in front of students and friends and came to the attention of director Lee Breuer, who helped arrange for a small performance space in Soho to produce the work for three weeks. The production was enthusiastically received and won Lapine an Obie Award.

Lapine was then approached to create a new piece for the Music-Theatre Group. He wrote and directed a workshop version of “Twelve Dreams,” a work inspired by a Jungian case history. The play was later presented at the Public Theatre and revived by Lincoln Center Theatre. Lapine eventually left the visual arts for a career in the theater, where he has also written and directed the plays: “Table Settings”; “Luck, Pluck & Virtue”; “The Moment When”; “Fran’s Bed”; “Mrs. Miller Does Her Thing”; and “Act One,” a stage adaptation of the famous Moss Hart autobiography.

On Broadway, he has written the book for and directed Stephen Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park with George,” “Into the Woods,” “Passion” and the multi-media revue “Sondheim on Sondheim.” He also directed “Merrily We Roll Along” as part of Encores Series at New York City Center. With William Finn he has collaborated on “March of the Falsettos” and “Falsettoland,” later presented on Broadway as “Falsettos,” “A New Brain,” “Muscle,” and “Little Miss Sunshine.” He has also directed, on Broadway, David Henry Hwang’s “Golden Child,” “The Diary of Anne Frank,” Michel Legrand’s “Amour,” “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” and the 2012 revival of “Annie.” Among his many off-Broadway offerings were three Shakespeare productions for the Public Theatre.

He co-produced and directed the HBO documentary “Six by Sondheim,” for which he received an Emmy® nomination and has also directed three feature films. He has been nominated for 12 Tony® Awards, winning on three occasions, and has received five Drama Desk Awards, the Peabody Award and the Pulitzer Prize. In 2011, he was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame.

Lapine is a member of the Dramatist Guild Council and for the last 13 years has been a mentor for TDF's Open Doors Program. He currently lives in New York City.

Breaking News


Patrick Osborne


Director Patrick Osborne, who joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2008 as an animator on “Bolt,” took part in the Studio’s Spark program—which invites artists to explore their own unique ideas in a month-long project that is presented to the Studio team. His experimental short “Pet” was a hit among his fellow Disney artists. Osborne, whose credits Disney’s 2010 feature “Tangled” and 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman,” for which he served as head of animation, was later tapped as co-head of animation for the upcoming feature “Big Hero 6.” But his plans changed when he pitched the idea for “Feast” as part of WDAS’ new shorts program—the project was greenlit with Osborne as director.

Kristina Reed


Producer Kristina Reed produced 2012’s Oscar®-winning short “Paperman.” She has been a key player at Walt Disney Animation Studios since 2008, with overlapping roles as vice president, production, and development producer.

Reed began her career in effects/computer graphics with a six-year stint at the innovative production company Rhythm & Hues Studios in 1992. “It was an exciting time where it was clear that CGI could do more than flying logos but whole frontiers like water, fire and fur were yet to be conquered.” Starting as a production assistant and rising to producer, she worked on a variety of projects including the elaborate themed attraction, “Star Trek: The Experience,” at the Las Vegas Hilton, which debuted in 1998.

For the next five years, Reed worked in visual effects on such projects as “Armageddon,” “Mighty Joe Young” and “Peter Pan.”
