James B. Nicola

stage director, composer, lyricist, acting coach,
and now. . .

. . . POET!

Welcome to my website. I try to keep it no frills, low-tech, so that the emphasis is on the substance, not the bells and whistles. But it is a work-in-progress, so one day that might change.

The newest news: Stage to Page: Poems from the Theater is out! See the "Stage to Page" page by looking to the right and clicking there.

Manhattan Plaza is the story of New York City, the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, and the performing arts community—in verse.

My first book was non-fiction, called Playing the Audience. It won a CHOICE magazine award.

Hope to see you soon.
