Tinker Bell and the Big Sequel

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s out. It’s called “Tinker Bell & the Lost Treasure,” and it’s the first feature film we’ve ever been involved in. An album featuring two (okay, one-and-a-half) songs (one has music by slammin’ film composer Joel McNeely with lyrics by Val and myself) is released on iTunes as of September 22 (but […]

First San Diego Review Is In: “LONG STORY SHORT Is A Smart Surprise”

The three of us had a fantastic time attending opening night on Friday at San Diego Rep. The show is in great shape, and the San Diego Union-Tribune agrees. We could not be more thrilled. “Every time I look at you, I turn into me.” It’s the kind of clever, compact line that pops up […]

Tell Me What’s On Your Soap Opera

One of the first songs I wrote for GrooveLily is “Tell Me What’s On Your Mind.” It’s very sweet, very straightforward, and (in my humble opinion) memorable — so much so that we actually recorded it three times over the course of four years in an effort to get it on the radio. (To wit: […]

Emerging from Radio Silence, Solo Shows in Palo Alto

Brendan and I are emerging from under moving boxes in Glendale, CA…Gene is about to pack up his now-larger family and move to Montclair, NJ…and our spin on all of this is: GrooveLily HQ is now bicoastal! We are excited for all the music we are still planning to make as a band (see our […]

Life Imitating Art Imitating Life (Or; Sadness, Joy, Major Life Events and Everything being Eerily Related)

All spring long, the pace of life had been ramping up. Brendan and I had begun flying out to Los Angeles at least once a month, working on songs for three separate TINKER BELL movies; Gene and Suzanne had begun preparing and cocooning in earnest, as baby boy #2 pressed forward (and down) toward his […]

It’s all over at the milburn-vigoda site, folks.

Sleeping Beauty Wakes

Sleeping Beauty Wakes by GrooveLily SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES had two successful productions in 2011: McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ and  La Jolla Playhouse in La Jolla, CA, where it was extended due to popular demand. This spring, we are continuing to work on the show with our collaborators, as we continue our slow trundle toward […]

A (Little) Midsummer Night’s Dream

Originally, we made a nearly-full-on-musical-theatre version of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM back in 2006 with director Tina Landau, at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ and the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ. We are delighted that this project we love so much has found new life. It’s a shorter, leaner, more musicalized, rock-festival version of […]


songs from Wheelhouse by GrooveLily WHEELHOUSE is a musical performed by and written by the three members of GrooveLily: Valerie Vigoda, Brendan Milburn, and Gene Lewin. It is an autobiographical musical comedy about the worst decision we ever made: to ditch all of our worldly possessions and move into a used RV, which broke beyond repair […]
