MICHAEL WEINER co-wrote music and lyrics for the Broadway musical First Date,
which ran at the Longacre Theatre in New York starring Zachary Levi (Disney’s Tangled,
TV’s “Chuck”) after a sold-out run at Seattle’s 5th Avenue/ACT Theatres. The romantic
comedy musical has now been produced in over 50 cities around the world including:

successful run at historic Ford’s Theatre in Washington D.C. Recently, Michael wrote
original songs for the hottest musical act in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter,
Celestina Warbeck & the Banshees, based on a character by J.K. Rowling. He has
developed TV projects for ABC, FOX, Disney Channel and Nickelodeon and has created
shows and songs for Disney Animation, Disney Cruise Line, and Disney Parks around
the globe. Upcoming stage musicals include: an adaptation of the hit film 17 Again
(Directed by Adam Shankman/Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures), Galileo (book by Emmy-
Winning writer Danny Strong), an adaptation of the ballroom dance film, Take the Lead,
and an original musical comedy with book by Jerry Zucker, co-creator of Airplane! and
