When not writing at The Bits about film and television on DVD and Blu-ray, he's happily serving as Co-Editor of The Second Disc. Joe joined the website shortly after its launch in early 2010, and he has since penned daily news and reviews there, spotlighting classic music of all genres. In 2009, he began contributing theatre and music reviews to the print publication The Sondheim Review, and his work still appears regularly in the magazine.
Joe has also worked in a variety of capacities on and off Broadway as well as at some of the premier theatres in the U.S., including Lincoln Center Theater, George Street Playhouse, Paper Mill Playhouse, Long Wharf Theatre, and the York Theatre Company. Over the past fifteen years, he has felt privileged to work on productions alongside artists such as the late Arthur Laurents, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, all screenwriters from Hollywood's golden age.
