See “Inside Out” Musical by Award-Winning Playwright and Lyricist, FIDM Graphic Design Instructor Doug Haverty

Formerly of A&M Records and Vice President of Creative Services at All American Communications, Doug Haverty has taught many Graphic Design courses at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. He still takes on new projects, often merging his passion for music and design, through his design firm Art & Soul Design in Burbank, CA.

Inside Out Musical

“Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Inside Out by Doug Haverty and Adryan Russ throws a boldly bright spotlight on the positive loving effects of group therapy,” says Don Grigware of who gave it a 5/5 “Critics Choice” rating. The play itself is set in the late 1980s where a women’s therapy group, headed by group leader, Grace, is transformed forever when Dena joins the group and winds up being a catalyst for change in the lives of Sage, a flower child; Liz, a powerful businesswoman who has problems balancing work and home; Chlo, a gay bank employee and single mom of a teenage son; and Molly, a mother of two young children who is dealing with weight and work issues. Featuring tuneful, memorable music and insightful lyrics, Inside Out is every bit as timely today as it was when it premiered Off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theater. And for the next few weeks, you still have an opportunity to see it!
