Einar Adalsteinsson

Being born and raised in Reykjavik, I do admit that there was a point (not too long ago) when I believed that all musicals were written in the 1950s by the brilliant Norwegian dramatist Thorbjørn Egner, and addressed social issues like dental healthcare and vegetarianism – and ever since I realised that I was wrong, I have been facinated by musical theatre.

With a background in theatre, I am a versatile artist with experience as an actor, director, writer, translator, composer, and producer. I am driven to explore and expand the American musical, pushing the boundaries and discovering new ways to bring stories to life through music.

I am a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and New York University's Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program.
