A writer-performer based in the New York City metro area, Sally Fay and partners Bill Weeden and David Finkle have been working together as Weeden, Finkle & Fay for 20 years. As well as winning awards for their nightclub act, they have written and performed two original off-Broadway musicals, Trust Us and Survival Kitsch. Their successful children’s musical, Babar’s Birthday, commissioned by Theatreworks USA, toured theatres and schools all over the country. Fay and collaborators are the authors of Move It and It’s Yours, a new musical; a production of the show is currently planned for spring 2002 by the Pleasance Theatre in London.
Through their corporate entertainment firm, Fay and partners have written, performed and produced humorous business shows for a long list of Fortune 500 companies, including Fortune Magazine itself. When their company was profiled in The Wall Street Journal, Fay was only the third woman ever to have her face “etched” on the front page (her predecessors were Corazon Aquino and Mary Agee).
On her own, Fay writes and performs for the State Street Project in Trenton, New Jersey, a theatre program for at-risk children. She also writes country songs with Neil Johnson of New York’s Neil Scott Johnson Band.
Besides her theatrical pursuits, Fay is a corporate communications consultant—conceiving, writing, editing and marketing pieces of all kinds for New York area companies. She co-leads an established divorce support group and volunteers her writing skills with a parenting project for female prison inmates.
