HEATH SAUNDERS is a composer, lyricist, actor, singer-songwriter, and general know-it-all (not in a good way) who spends his free time writing musicals you haven't heard of yet. As a performer, you might have seen him on Broadway in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 where he added like 15 high kicks to choreography that in no way needed it, often while playing the guitar. Coming up, he'll be appearing in NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, and then, almost immediately following, in Jesus Christ Superstar at Chicago Lyric Opera, largely because he really likes Jesus Christ Superstar. As a singer-songwriter, his self-produced tracks blend electronic grooves with a modern theatrical lyric sensibility — plus a dash of fast-paced rap and spoken word poetry for good measure. His original musical Newton’s Cradle, co-authored with Kim Saunders, won the NYMF Best Musical award in 2016, along with 5 additional accolades, including Best Lyrics. Training: University of Miami's Frost School of Music.
