Things To Ruin

Second Stage, The Zipper Factory,

Ars Nova, Joe's Pub

“I would call Things to Ruin the beginning of something, except that it is already well underway”

-New York Times

“A welcome interruption to the Off-Broadway musical scene”


“Special mention should go to director John Simpkins who has turned this eclectic mix of music into an organic whole with a fluid and energetic sense of style.” 


“The buzz that surrounds Mr. Iconis recalls the excitement that in earlier days surrounded Marc Shaiman, Mr. Larson and Jason Robert Brown.”

-New York Times
