Her new musical, The Love Note Musical, was produced Off Broadway in 2014. It has since gone on to have several spirited productions at schools, camps, and theatres. www.thelovenote.com

 
Gail Phaneuf wrote MONSTERS! A Midlife Musical Meltdown , a comic musical collaboration with composer and Broadway lyricist Ernie Lijoi. MONSTERS was produced at The Deertrees Theatre Festival in Harrison, ME and at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA.nbspnbspThe comic musical was a finalist in the Rod Parker Playwriting Competition, kicking off developmental readings in Boston and New York City. MONSTERS! had its first full production in Boston, where it garnered excellent reviews, and has gone on to several stock productions. www.monstersthemusical.com

 
Gail is a former president of The Playwrights Platform, where several of her plays were introduced. Her short play Stop Requested, (in the Heuer catalog) was awarded best play and best director at the 2008 Playwrights' Platform summer festival. Games and Puzzles was produced by Image Theatre Co. for the 2008 Boston Theater Marathon. Her prickly Urban Gardens was produced by the South Camden Theatre Company in New Jersey. The play won an Audience Choice award at the Platform 2004 Summer Festival. Her play A Perfect Match was produced at the 2008 ACME Winter New Works Festival. Her edgy political piece Random Selection was chosen for the Provincetown Theatre Company Spring Playwrights Festival and was performed at the Boston Theater Marathon. It was staged as part of The War Games Series at Curry College and was published in Belgium in a collection of short plays by Boston playwrights. Binding the Artful Dodger received a staged reading in Provincetown in early 2007, and a full production by GP Productions in 2009. Her latest play Breakfast with Mary was staged at The Deertrees Theatre Festival in 2011. Gail has appeared as an actor on New England stages for several years, most recently in the role of Leona Dawson in Tennessee William's Small Craft Warnings, Stevie in Albee's The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? and as Anna in Paula Vogel's The Baltimore Waltz. She also appeared in the inaugural Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown, as Viola Shields in The One Exception.
