Dan Fishback

Dan Fishback writes tiny songs and enormous plays. His musical The Material World was called one of the Top Ten Plays of 2012 by Time Out New York. His play You Will Experience Silence was called “sassier and more fun than Angels in America” by the Village Voice. Fishback has released several albums and toured Europe and North America, both solo and with his band Cheese On Bread, which just released “The One Who Wanted More,” their first album in a decade. Cheese On Bread’s music video “Bad Friend” was directed by filmmaker Stephen Winter and features Justin Vivian Bond. In 2017, a reading of Fishback’s play Rubble Rubble at the American Jewish Historical Society was canceled over his advocacy for Palestinian human rights. The backlash in support of Fishback was covered by The New York Times, and the reading was rescheduled at New World Stages on the heels of a successful crowdfunding campaign.  Fishback is a proud member of the Jewish Voice for Peace Artist Council
