Honorable Mention Awards Cement Kissin’s Legacy Of Mediocrity

The West Village Musical Theater Festival awarded Carl Kissin’s musical, “Date of a Lifetime” (Composer: Rob Baumgartner), Honorable Mention in the categories of Best Original Script, Best Lyrics, and Best Musical. “When it comes to finishing second, I’m first!” said a beaming Carl, “and that makes these awards really special.” Carl also deeply appreciated that festival organizers Patrick Wickham and Katrina Ylimaki invited him back for next year. “They said if I tried a little harder and really focused maybe I could get third place next time around. These are the kind of positive role models I need in my life.”
