BILLBOARD'S GREATEST HITS. November 3-5, 2017. Derek Nicoletto is set to direct Billboard's Greatest Hits a one-act about three teenage girls and their struggle to define true beauty. Open Hydrant Theatre at The Point, Bronx.
LOVER LOVER. In December 2017, Derek Nicoletto will direct Lover Lover, a play by Veronika Gribanova. After a two-week, sold-out run at the Toronto Fringe Festival in the summer of 2017, theatre company Subverting Something brings Veronika Gribanova’s play Lover Lover to the The Duplex in New York City’s iconic Greenwich Village. Lover Lover is a story about heartbreak, identity, sexuality, polyamory, and about the limitations and possibilities of love. It is the story of two lovers that have never met, and another one that’s oddly holding them together. Full of surprises, this site-specific piece is an intimate conversation between strangers in a public space. It unfolds in real time, with the audience around them. In “Lover Lover,” the characters come to The Duplex to see a show…and end up being the entertainment. Get tickets Here

This time, we are joined by the crazy-talented Sam Morales on b/g vocals & Josh Pillbox on bass. For this set only, Tommy,Andrew and I are going to throw in a song or two from our old band Telling on Trixie. And as usual, some Fleetwood Mac will be worked into the arrangement of one of our songs.
Longtime listeners will remember Derek Nicoletto from his earlier appearance back in 2012 – an interview that remains among my favorites. I was really excited to talk to Derek again, this time about his new band Foam Ropes, which puts his solid songwriting in a fresh new framework. Derek has a real gift for writing evocative lyrics and melodies. When coupled with his unique ability to communicate his artistic process, we have a really great interview that I’m so happy to share this with you guys! Enjoy! - Michael Harren, Mikeypod
Out.com named Derek Nicoletto a popnography "Need to Know" artist. Read the article here and also head to the Press page to read rave reviews for Nicoletto's latest work, "Foam Ropes."
Foam Ropes released its first music video from its debut album. "Potion Me Well." Written and performed by Derek Nicoletto's band, Derek also directed the video, featuring some of his fellow classmates from his acting studio, Matthew Corozine Studios. On the studio website, Derek wrote a student blog about the Foam Ropes project, the video and how they related to his Meisner-based training at MCS.
Derek Nicoletto's band, Foam Ropes, will offer a pre-order of their self-titled debut album on March 30th on iTunes and GooglePlay. Upon pre-order, two tracks will download for you immediately, "Truth in Fables" and "Potion Me Well." Here those tracks on Soundcloud now.
Foam Ropes, Derek Nicoletto's new rock band, has released the song "Birches" as they continue to record their debut album. "Birches" is available for free download on Soundcloud and can be heard on the FoamRopes.com
Derek admits, "This is the most mellow of the Foam Ropes songs and should not be taken to dictate our band's sound as a whole. But there's a personal timing reason that guided me to share this song now, and before the Foam Ropes album was finished. Plus, we just needed to get some material out there. It's hard to talk about your band in a vacuum."
"Hell in Gramercy" has been nominated for Best Rock Song by the 9th Out Music Awards. The Awards will be held January 19th, 2015 in New York City, hosted by Lea Delaria and Ari Gold.
"Just Panic And Get It Over With" was also nominated for Best CD Cover Artwork, honoring the artist Ian Sklarsky.
