We had the pleasure of interviewing Charlie Rosen over Zoom video.

Charlie Rosen, an experienced Grammy Award and Tony Award-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist, orchestrator, and music director. Most recently, Charlie received a Tony Award nomination for his orchestrating work on the Broadway musical A Strange Loop.

A Strange Loop garnered 11 Tony nominations and 2 Tony award wins, making it the most-nominated show on Broadway this year. The momentous musical follows a Black and queer young artist at war with a host of demons — not least of which, the punishing thoughts in his own head — in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop.

Charlie got involved with A Strange Loop after working as the Music Supervisor and Orchestrator for Be More Chill. He has the ability to act as a chameleon with music and fit into any situation he is brought into and once he started working on A Strange Loop, he collaborated with the show’s composer, Michael Jackson heavily. Charlie can be analytical about sound because he has been interested in so many different styles and genres of music since childhood.

He stepped into the role as orchestrator with a group of six musicians already selected. With such a small group of musicians, Charlie pushed for the orchestration to be clear and flow well, while also letting the musicians use some of their own voice so each show could provide a unique experience to the audience. He aimed to deepen the impact of the musical journey of the show through fully realized choices of genre, tone, color, and instrumentation.

Charlie is currently working on orchestrating the upcoming Broadway musical Some Like it Hot. Other projects he’s worked on range from a number of Broadway hits, including Prince of Broadway and American Psycho.
