Mark Governor’s rock musical shAme is in development for Broadway, with multiple Tony Award-winner Kathleen Marshall directing. Earlier versions of the show as a rock opera have been produced in Los Angeles, Boston and Berlin.  Mark was also the co-founder and co-artistic director of the Los Angeles Rock Opera Company and is the co-composer and lyricist of the world music opera Possession: The Legend of El Rojo. He adapted and arranged Pete Townshendʼs A Quick One While Heʼs Away for stage performance and video and has several new music theater works in development. In 2021, Mark was the Music Producer for the virtual Broadway revival of Amour by Michelle LeGrand and Jeremy Sams.

Mark has received commissions for ten dance pieces from Modern Dance companies in California.  He was the subject of a video documentary on his controversial anti-war dance composition, Peace By Piece, which won an Emmy award in 1993.
