Known for her beaming smile, infectious laughter, wit, and “never quit” attitude, Linda Kaufman has been writing music and lyrics for original shows for thirty years. Linda is a creative powerhouse AND a realtor! If she can't sell you on a show, she'll sell you a house! She also wrote the book/script for her last three productions! "Senior Moments," her most popular show, has had six productions around the country. It was the impact this musical had on audiences that resulted in the non-profit Real Life Productions, Inc. whose mission is to provide free entertainment to seniors and other underserved communities.
