Dilthey & Doyle have been collaborating for the past 18 years and have worked extensively for the past five. Meeting at Marymount College, Tarrytown in the late 90’s, they became fast friends and allies since then.
Brian Leahy Doyle, lyricist, earned his MFA in Theatre, with emphases in Directing and Dramaturgy from the University of Utah, where he served as the first resident dramaturge of the Pioneer Theatre Company. Professional directing credits: the Whole Theatre, Cincinnati Theatre Festival, and Louisville’s Classics in Context, and such off-Broadway venues as the Irish Arts Center, Riverside Shakespeare, the Open Eye, the 92nd Street Y/Makor, and the New York premiere of composer Aaron Jay Kernitz’s The Four Seasons of Futurist Cuisine at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. His book, Encore! The Renaissance of Wisconsin Opera Houses, published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press, focuses upon the renovation and restoration of historic theaters in Wisconsin and has received the Theatre Historical Society of America’s Outstanding Book of the Year Award, among other honors. His first full-length play, Greetings from Fitzwalkerstan, with music by Michael Dilthey, was produced at the Broom Street Theatre in Madison, WI, in January-February 2015, and his second full-length play, The Chancers!, was given a staged reading at The Players Club in Manhattan in June 2016. He currently teaches at Mercy College.
