Janet Yates Vogt

Janet Yates Vogt (Playwright, Composer, and Lyricist), along with her writing partner, Mark Friedman, are the authors of several musicals ranging from their critically acclaimed Tenderly: The Rosemary Clooney Musical, described by Rosie’s brother, Nick, as “the perfect arc of our lives” – to their nationally toured young audience musicals including How I Became a Pirate and Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale. Janet traces her love of musicals back to a young age when she accompanied her father singing love songs to her mother – and her composing back to the first grade when her teacher taught Janet’s first compositions to the class to sing. Janet, a graduate of the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, is also the composer of numerous educational keyboard books and choral music published worldwide. She lives in Cincinnati and is married to her husband, George, who drove Janet to her piano lessons when she was a teenager (she owes a lot to George!)
