About the Talent – Robert Nassif

Robert Lindsey Nassif is a composer/lyricist/librettist who has worked on Broadway, off-Broadway and regionally with Hal Prince, Stephen Sondheim, Arthur Miller, Carol Burnett, Joss Whedon and Disney Feature Animation.

Three years ago during Brucemore’s Cabaret in the Courtyard series, Rob premiered 11 songs from a new musical he was working on about Nikola Tesla, with a story by Cavan Hallman. During this Artisan Studio feature, Rob will give the first public reading of Tesla featuring a cast of extremely talented performers.

Nikola Tesla was an inventor, a visionary and perhaps a madman, who loved Sarah Bernhardt and also loved a pigeon. He saw electricity as a basic human right and battled Edison to make electricity affordable to everyone. He foresaw our modern world and in doing so, invented the future.
