Raiah Rofsky

Biography

Hi, I'm Raiah! I'm currently in my second and final year at NYU's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. I am a Jewish, queer composer currently living in New York City. Before I moved here, I lived in LA where I wrote a cabaret musical for the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival called LORELEI: I'M COMING OUT. For that I received three Broadway World Los Angeles Award nominations. I have also written a short song cycle titled IT'S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE, which was set to premiere at the Oxy Arts Center before COVID-19 shut it down. My most recent project is NAYIKA, which I composed and orchestrated with lyricist and co-composer, Vaibu Mohan. NAYIKA was workshopped at the 2021 Phoenix Theatre 2021 Festival of New American Theatre, and its album iteration is currently on Spotify. At the moment I am writing my thesis musical at GMTWP, and am studying under Emily Grishman in this year's Maestra Mentorship.
