David Rossmer

David Rossmer co-wrote Rated P, developed for television by Kelly Ripa’s Milojo Productions and bought by ABC Studios. With Dan Lipton, Rossmer is writing the Broadway musical of Monopoly for Hasbro and The Araca Group, in collaboration with 3-time Tony Award nominee Rick Elice (JERSEY BOYS). Rossmer and Lipton also wrote the original Judd Apatow-esque comedy The Blonde Streak, the sci-fi musical Perfect Mate (commissioned by PCLO), and their form-bending satire JOE! is being developed as a TV show with Tootsie/Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Santino Fontana. Their song “They Don’t Let You in the Opera” is featured on Kelli O’Hara’s Always album, and performed by the Tony winner across the country, including Library of Congress, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. Her video performing with the Orlando Symphony went viral, garnering over 6 million views. Rossmer was recently chosen as part of Audible’s inaugural class of playwrights, for which he was commissioned by Amazon. As an actor, he has performed on Broadway in Les Miserables (Thernardier, recent revival), Peter and the Starcatcher (originated role of Teddy) and others, and can be seen recently on TV in The Good Fight, the final season of Elementary and the second season of Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

With Steve Rosen, they wrote book, music and lyrics for THE OTHER JOSH COHEN, a NY Times Critic’s Pick nominated for six Drama Desk Awards (including Outstanding Musical, Book, Music and Lyrics) and a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical. The show began at NYMF, moved to a not-for-profit run at the Soho Playhouse, then on to sold-out runs at the 1500 seat Paper Mill Playhouse, the Geva Theatre and most recently a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway commercial production at the Westside Theatre in NYC, twice extended. Rosen and Rossmer were recently hired to write the next chapter of the National Lampoon Vacation series — Broadway Vacation, a Broadway musical about the Griswolds in New York City. Rossmer and Rosen are co-creators, writers and hosts of the comedy improv variety show Don’t Quit Your Night Job, which began at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre and migrated to a successful commercial production Off-Broadway. For Don’t Quit, Rosen and Rossmer wrote special material for the likes of Sting, Sutton Foster, Hank Azaria, David Hyde Pierce, Julianna Margulies and Lin-Manuel Miranda, to name a few. Their TV show Get In, Get Out is being developed by Radical Media.
