Community Member Spotlight
This week we sat down with one of our Adim Members, Patrick Spencer, to highlight his story as a creator and his experience thus far as an integral member of our community.
Musical Theater? In a tech-entertainment start-up like Adim? It’s more likely than you think. Especially after you meet Patrick Spencer, one of Adim’s pioneer composers, writers and performers of all things on-stage. With a rehearsal pianist for a mother, Patrick found himself constantly in and around theaters as a child, giving him the inspiration and instigation for a life in the fine arts. As young as second grade, Patrick was traveling all across the world to perform with the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus, getting a taste of what he hoped would be the rest of his life. He sang in children’s cabarets, played in school band recitals, and even joined a ska band that opened for groups like Reel Big Fish and Sublime. But it was always the in theater where Patrick found his best self: “this idea of being about to reach out to people, or even just one person, and connecting with such real emotions, there’s just nothing like it.”
After graduating from the University of Arizona with a BFA Musical Theater, Patrick had a tough decision to make: “do I go to LA and do the TV/Film thing, or do I move to New York and do the Theater thing?” Following his heart, Patrick packed his bags for Broadway and landed himself a spot in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop, a very esteemed program where Patrick’s writing career truly began: “If you want to get yourself on stage, you have to be able to make your own art.” First, Patrick wrote Big Picture, a show about succeeding in TV and Film, of all things, that was gaining serious traction before the pandemic shut down any hopes of live performance. But this didn’t deter the young writer — with extra time, and the gift of virtual collaboration, Patrick and two BMI colleagues were able to come together and carve out a new musical, An Axemas Story. The Christmas tree 80’s-slasher-show just closed a three-week run on the Lower East Side, and already has plans for another showing in March. “What I love about getting to do this show is that it demands a bunch of people to come together to build an idea that no one person can build on their own. You need the actors, the directors, the lighting designers — the same can be said for the work we do at Adim.”
While the traditional artform that is theater may not seem to mesh easily with the innovative experiment that is Adim, for Patrick, it was a no brainer. Having always wanted access to Hollywood, even after moving to New York, Adim’s virtual nature and collaborative approach gave him this golden opportunity. Joining CR2 room Late Night with Jimmy Charrone, Patrick made an immediate splash with his musical background by writing the show’s opening jingle: “My theater skills are bettering my TV writing skills, and vice versa. I couldn’t be happier to be able to finally do both.” As Adim grows and builds, it is the artists like Patrick, full of unique skills and perspectives, who will truly take our characters and make them into something revolutionary.
