- Author BiographyA graduate of the University of California at Santa Cruz, Mann has had several productions of his material. In 1991, original dramas Grave Relations and She Sat Behind Me (available through Eldridge Publishing), were produced in San Jose, CA. In 1993, Tangelo Productions of Los Gatos, CA, produced Mann's originals Godot Is Dead., Separate Crosses, BOX 27, Witches & Warlocks and Beast Born In The Night. The politically loaded and controversial BOX 27 went on to an award-winning six month run in North Hollywood in 1996-97. Mann received a 1996 Drama-Logue Award for his script, the 1997 Artistic Directors Achievement Award for Best Original Drama, and the 1997 GLAAD Media Award for Best LA Production. In 1998, Mann's first original musical, Cumberland Blues was performed in San Jose and San Francisco, attracting national media attention. Cumberland Blues marks the first time that the beloved songs of Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter were presented in a musical comedy, prompting Jon Pareles of the New York Times to comment, It's ingenious and good-natured. If Cole Porter songs can be strung together for the stage, so can Hunter-Garica songs. More information can be found on the web at www.cumberlandblues.net. Mann currently lives in Hollister, California, with his wife Kathi and sons Alexander and Theron. Mann is a member of The Dramatists Guild.
